Students See a SADD Convocation



On Tuesday, August 19, PHS and it’s students were given the opportunity to listen to SADD, Students Against Driving Drunk founder, Robert Anastas in the auditorium.

“Mr. Anastas has been delivering his powerful message for a very long time.  He understands the tough decisions students are faced with and encourages students to make the right choice by tell them to take their weaknesses and make them their strengths.  We were very fortunate to have him come to our school,” said principal Todd Hitchcock.

Anastas shared his tear-jerking story about how he, as a coach at Wayland High School in Massachusetts, lost two players, ages 17 and 19, to bad decisions.  

Anastas shared that if students get on the right track now in high school, it will carry throughout life. Anastas also shared that seventy-five percent of kids will give in to peer pressure and bad decisions and encourages students to be that twenty-five percent that does not and rises above the occasion.

For more information about Anastas and his foundation, students can visit the website ( for tips, questions or support.
