SADD - Saints Against Destructive Decisions

Originally, the mission of the SADD chapter was to help young people say "No" to drinking and driving. Today, the mission has expanded. Students have told us that positive peer pressure, role models and other strategies can help them say "No" to more than drinking and driving. And that is why SADD has become a peer leadership organization dedicated to preventing destructive decisions, particularly underage drinking, other drug use, impaired driving and teen violence as well as teen depression and suicide.

SADD's mission: To provide students with the best prevention and  intervention tools possible to deal with the issues of underage drinking, other drug use, impaired driving and other destructive decisions.  Students sign a pledge of commitment to stay drug and alcohol free and act as a positive school peer leader.

The West Feliciana High School chapter of SADD has been active since the Fall of 2000 and is sponsored by Leeneta Ewing.   Dues are $15 which includes a club T-shirt.  Meetings are held once a month during first hour.  Students participate in a variety of activities to promote our mission including chalk walks, Rock the Belt, Relay for Life, State Conference and PY/PM. Special thanks to the West Feliciana Parish Drug & Alcohol Awareness Council and MADD for their continued support of WFHS SADD!

ATTENTION WFHS STUDENTS

What is 4-H?    4-H is more than the raising and showing of livestock and horses. West Feliciana 4-H has many active project clubs which includes: Shooting Sports, Photography, Jr. Leader, Sewing, Horse, Nutrition, and Livestock.  Character Counts is also a program that is sponsored by 4-H in which high school 4-H’ers are trained to go into elementary classrooms and teach the six pillars of character. 4-H gives students the chance not only to learn new skills, but also teaches 4-H’ers how to give to the community through service learning projects. In the past, 4-H students have brought their pets to the nursing home to brighten the day of our elderly people. 4-H also conducts fund raisers -- the sweet potatoes are so good they almost sell themselves!  There are also many scholarship opportunities available on a parish and state level for those active in 4-H their last 3 years of school! Parent volunteers are invited to participate in many club activities. Any student or parent interested in 4-H can call the West Feliciana Parish AgCenter office at 635-3614, or email us at fritchie@agcenter.lsu.edu.
