Students come clean, sometimes face ostracism
If you could save someone from injury, or even death, by speaking up, would you hesitate?
What if, by speaking up, you risked consequences that included losing friends, losing a parent’s trust, being looked down on by your community, or even legal ramifications? Would you still speak up?
That is one risk a group of students from Pine River-Backus High School took in spite of the fact that in speaking out, some of them were admitting to using drugs at one time.
