STEVENSVILLE – This week’s One Class at a Time award winner is a Stevensville School Resource Officer who is teaching a drug program unique to the community. 

Officer Sam Fawcett has instituted the Too Good For Drugs program for his K-through-8 students. He says the program has the flexibility to teach the narrow the focus to the drug issues Stevensville schools are experiencing.  Fawcett says the program keeps the students engaged and builds on the topics that students were taught the previous year.

Fawcett, who received a $250 dollar check thanks to Republic Services and KPAX-TV, says the grant helps get supplies that they cannot purchase with limited available funding,

“We spend more time on the local drugs and the things that are happening, and that’s the nice thing about this program too, is that we are able to tailor specifically to our area if we need to," Fawcett explained. "So, we cover life choices, we cover skills, decision making, things like that as well as drug effects…long-term effect, short-term effects.”
