It can happen to anyone … including you! The Lybert family lived through the devastation of drugs and alcohol as their son Tyler struggled with drugs for 11 years before he decided to get help. After treatment, the family came together and decided to share their story to help youth and families with alcohol and drug prevention education, intervention and support. The family has spoken to more than 85,000 youth in 100 middle and high schools across southeastern Wisconsin.
The Lyberts will share their story with you at 6 p.m. Monday, Feb. 13, in the Sparta High School Auditorium. The presentation is free and open to the community. Parents, students, family members and caregivers are encouraged to attend.
“Drug abuse is a serious issue in Monroe County and should be a concern of all parents and community members. The district is grateful to the sponsors for making these presentations possible. I am hopeful that we will have good attendance at the evening presentation in recognition of the impact that drug abuse has on our students and our community,” Sparta Area School District Superintendent John Hendricks said.
The presentations focus on the importance of your choices and how your choices impact your life and the life of those around you.
The presentation is sponsored by Gundersen Health System – Tomah Clinic, Mayo Clinic Health System in Sparta and Tomah, Monroe County Safe Communities Coalition and Tomah Memorial Hospital.
