'Sticker Shock'

AWARENESS PROJECT - When some of their peers were sleeping in on a recent Saturday, some Fulton Independent students were out raising awareness about underage drinking and youth access to alcohol. Members of the SADD Club at Fulton High School – along with Andrea Hagerty, Fulton-Hickman County  ASAP  coordinator and sponsor of the club, and Ellen Walsh, director of the Four Rivers Regional Health Prevention and Education Center  – visited three local businesses who sell alcoholic beverages as part of a Sticker Shock campaign. While there, the teens placed bright yellow stickers on multi-packs of beer, wine coolers, and boxes of liquor on displays to reinforce the penalties for furnishing alcohol to minors. Owners of the local businesses that the teens visited agreed to having the stickers placed on their products as well as placing a larger sign on a store entrance to remind people entering about the consequences of providing alcohol to underage individuals as well as their commitment to refuse to sell products to those who are not of legal age to purchase it. They were also presented a plaque of participation by the SADD group. Following the sticker project, the students were treated to lunch at Angelina’s Pizza. Members of the FHS SADD Club who took part in the project were Anyia Jones, Latavia Thomas, Keshawn Murphy, Hailey Baggett, Mercedes Taylor, Janae Martin, Tiara Taylor and Janise Ware. Coach Mike Thomas, Michael Thomas, Keon Thomas, and Javon Thomas also helped with Sticker Shock project.
