This past week on Bobby Wiggins, the world renowned drug education expert, spoke on behalf of Narconon Freedom Center as a special guest at an elementary school near Marshall, Michigan.
Wiggins, who has worked in the Narconon network for 31 years, spoke with elementary and middle school kids on how drug use can have long-term effects on the body that can cause an individual to not be able to stop using drugs and suffer many negative consequences as a result of substance abuse issues.
Mr. Wiggins has delivered live drug education presentations with 920,000 kids nation-wide and was also featured in an audio visual curriculum that is used in 9,000 schools in the United States. Through the audio visual program Wiggins has been able to educate another 11 million kids.
“One of the key things the students learned was the fact that peer pressure is what starts people on drugs,” says Megan Werner Brennan, Dissemination Supervisor at Narconon Freedom Center. “With real life examples throughout his talk, Bobby impressed upon the students the importance of choosing their friends and activities.”
The students couldn't wait to ask more questions and wanted him to stay longer,” she adds, “and the teachers were also very impressed with the presentation.”
