SADD - Saints Against Destructive Decisions
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
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!

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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
