Local leaders join drug committee
Two Youngstown leaders are on the Ohio Joint Study Committee on Drug Use Prevention Education. Bob Hannon, president, United Way of Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley, and Krish Mohip, Youngstown City Schools CEO are among those on the committee.
Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine released the Drug Use Prevention Education Resource Guide aimed at helping schools implement effective drug-use prevention programming this week.
The guide builds on a 2017 report that concludes Ohio schools should provide consistent, age-appropriate, evidence-based substance-use prevention education for all students from kindergarten through 12th grade. It is available at OhioAttorneyGeneral.gov.
