ILHS students march in Columbus

Indian Lake High School students marched with others to show that most young people choose to be drug and alcohol free.

More than 75 ILHS SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) members went to Columbus Thursday to take part in the “We Are the Majority” Youth Rally with other teens from across Ohio.

Speakers included the "Amazing" Tei Street, a Columbus area educator and author, and former delegate to the White House Conference on a Drug Free America, Kevin Wanzer.

The group marched from Genoa Park to the Statehouse to let lawmakers know there are young people who are committed to making good life decisions.

The rally is a function of the Ohio Youth-Led Prevention Network. OYLPN is a joint venture between Drug Free Action Alliance (DFAA) and The Ohio Department of Mental Health & Addiction Services (Ohio MHAS).
