On Monday, September 30, 2013, Richard Ryan of Creative Drug Education spoke to St. Anne’s-Belfield parents about issues of teenage drug and alcohol use, abuse, and prevention, and led a Q&A session following his talk. Mr. Ryan is nationally recognized for his work with teenagers and drug prevention, and has worked with many independent day and boarding schools throughout the country. Mr. Ryan’s eloquence, honesty, thoughtfulness, and dynamism in communicating with students make him a perennial favorite with adolescents. Lasting the rest of this week, Mr. Ryan’s visit allows opportunities to work with both Upper and Middle School students on these important issues.
