Lee Rush, Executive Director of justCommunity, visited Quakertown High School last fall to observe students using the online AlcoholEdu Program. Rush wanted to observe a participating health class using the course after obtaining a $15,000 grant from the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (PLCB) to purchase the program. The grant paid for the implementation of AlcholEdu for all three high schools in Upper Bucks (Quakertown, Palisades and Pennridge). The program is strictly alcohol education and it presents students with facts and statistics. “Students get an individual online experience and it’s completely confidential,” said Lauren DeRewal, QCHS health teacher. Ryan Stetler, Freshman Center health teacher, noted, “Alcohol education is important, especially at the age the students are now because this is the age when students are more likely to be subjected to alcohol if they haven’t already tried it.” Students said they enjoyed the course and found it useful and informative. They especially liked that it is interactive. Rush said he was pleasantly surprised to see how successful the program is proving itself to be.
