OKEECHOBEE — On Nov. 15, Sheriff Noel E. Stephen took part in "The Facts. Your Future." Locally at the Okeechobee County High School, along with other leaders from our community. The group focused on helping our youth through difficult choices due to peer pressure and constant targeting of their age group by outside sources.
This initiative is from First Lady Casey DeSantis' multi-faceted campaign to heighten youth understanding of substance use's dangerous and life-altering effects.
Through the First Lady's "The Facts. Your Future." campaign, the State of Florida is focusing on supporting students statewide to ensure they receive prevention instruction and encouragement to protect and maintain their health, avoid substance misuse, and discourage risky behaviors so they can thrive and flourish for life.
This interactive campaign ensures students are informed and can make safe decisions as they grow.
