Students Against Destructive Decisions is a nationally recognized youth program sponsored by the Lewis County Sheriff's Office. This group is dedicated to addressing issues of underage drinking, impaired driving, drug use and other destructive decisions and killers of young people. In an effort to promote safe behavior, the Highland High School SADD chapter is responsible for Highland High Schools participation in the Missouri Department of Transportation's Battle of the Belt program. Highland High School has won several awards for its participation in the program.
A major initiative for the SADD chapter is the creation and oversight of the SADD Haunted House at the Lewis County Fairgrounds. Money raised from the haunted house provides after prom prizes for all students. The SADD group works very hard during the creation of the haunted house.
Special thanks to the students, parents, Lewis County Fair Board, and Highland High School Staff who assist with this project.
