As part of National Addictions Awareness Week a young person is recognized with the Healthy Youth Role Model Award sponsored by CADAC and the Community Youth Resource Center. CADAC’s Tiffany Ealey says this year’s winner is Curtis Custer from Denare Beach. She says he is a grade 11 student at Creighton Community School and he’s a positive role model for his peers but also for younger students as well, encouraging them not to use alcohol and drugs. She adds Curtis also exemplifies that how hard you work truly reflects on what you achieve in life noting he works after school, he works hard to maintain high grades and is just a really positive kid.
Curtis received a gift basket, a 50 dollar gift, a personal plaque and a plaque to hang in his school.
