Board approves grant funding to educate youth on dangers of heroin
Federal grant money to be spent in Lincoln-Way and Wilmington schools
“Part of the solution to ending the heroin epidemic is educating kids early on about how real and serious this issue has become in our community," said board member Ragan Freitag (R-Wilmington). "I've seen firsthand the consequences of heroin overdoses when a good friend died during my first year of practicing law. This devastates families and destroys lives, and as elected officials, we need to do all we can to stop it."
