Recognizing youth leadership

Dear Editor,

On May 4, the Interact Club of Pemberton (the youth branch of Rotary) hosted the Odd Squad at Pemberton Secondary School for both Pemberton and Mount Currie schools.

The presentations were a stark reminder of the deep and painful impact substance abuse can have on individuals, families and communities. Bringing the Odd Squad to Pemberton was an Interact initiative and they worked hard to make it happen.

On behalf of the Winds of Change steering committee, I would like to acknowledge the Pemberton Interact Club for taking a leadership role in increasing the awareness of addictions among their peers. Your efforts remind us all that leadership to improve community health and wellbeing can come from many different places. Thank you!

Sheldon Tetreault
Chair, Winds of Change Steering Committee
