The West Johnston High School Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) club swept the state awards at the 33rd Annual SADD Conference held November 20th-22nd in Durham.
The club received the “Chapter of the Year” award for the different school and community activities they have done throughout the year to promote safe decisions.
Senior Nik Reasor won the SADD “Student of the Year” award for his service to the state board, his school, and planning the 2015 SADD Conference.
“I was honestly honored when I won the award. I wasn’t expecting it all because everyone on the SAB (Student Advisory Board) was a great individual who selflessly devoted numerous hours of time working on the conference,” said Reasor. “It was just great to have my hard work recognized and be able to say that I have been an integral part of this great club.”
At the end of the conference, Reasor and advisor Amanda Fisher walked away with trophies to show off their efforts.
“Amanda Fisher won Advisor of the Year due to her work this year for the chapter and for the state SADD club,” said Reasor. “I won Student of the Year due to my intensive work for the Student Advisory Board and for all the work I have done for the local SADD chapter.”
The entire group came home with a title to their name because they also won “Best Chapter.”
“The whole West Johnston section got insanely loud, and we got a standing ovation for winning all three awards,” said Fisher. “I was excited to win, but I was more excited when they called Nik’s name and when they called West Johnston for Chapter of the Year.”
“I am so proud of all my kids for all the work that they do throughout the year,” she added.
