Podcasters Preston, Lily, and Miles discuss the school district’s Tobacco Free Policy and the E-Cig epidemic with high school principal, Mr. Hankins.
Though meetings have looked different, Webster County KY-ASAP Coalition has continue to meet during the Covid-19 pandemic. Starting in May, the Coalition’s bi-monthly meeting moved to Zoom. Virtual meetings have continued with both in-person and Zoom being offered for the November meeting. With the surge in cases locally, the January meeting was via Zoom only.
Just a few additional adaptations the coalition has made: online trainings for teachers and youth instead of in-person, Zoom meetings for Youth True Blue Crew members, Chatter 4 Change podcast providing information and support to youth, education provided to parents through handouts with food deliveries/pick-ups, faith-based meetings to collaborate resources, social media updates, Character Counts through Google classrooms.
A few True Blue activities during the pandemic:
The True Blue Crew is busy in the community even during the holiday rush! In addition to the on-going work of the coalition, WC Judge Executive proclaimed the 1st day of each month in 2021 TRUE BLUE DAY and the Crew showed up in the Providence Christmas parade. Special thanks to Ameera, daughter of the Coalition Chairperson, who weathered the cold to wave the blue from the sunroof!
Lily is introduced to listeners and shares her favorite experiences with True Blue. Plus, the 4 discuss Covid Pandemic experiences.
