PRESENTING: Mental Health and Drug Awareness at Cosby High School

Presenting to Cosby High School health science sophomores about my story and how the funniest, most popular kid in school developed depression, became addicted to heroin and died by suicide. Charles went to this high school for 2.5 years prior to leaving the state to ultimately graduate from Wasatch Academy in Utah.

Surprisingly, many high school students are unaware of the raging drug epidemic and many of these students attended the RVA Regional summit on the opioid crisis.

Teaching two classes for the day. One class from 11:15am-12:50pm and then 1:20pm-3:00pm.  

I will be appealing to local market to help me fund a few prizes for some of the interactive games we will play.
