Samantha is a senior at Calvary Lutheran High School. She implemented a Suicide Prevention Week the past two years. Last year, she organized a SADD Day; a half-day of prevention information and activities for the school because students were unable to attend Speak Hard, the state SADD conference. She has served as a MYAA Youth Ambassador for two years, her school’s SADD president this past year, and has overseen such projects as Red Ribbon Week and It Only Takes One. She has attended the last two Prevention Days as a youth representative where she was able to visit with her legislators.
