AG Rutledge Launches Prescription for Life at Cabot Freshman Academy
Oct 23, 2018
The Cabot School District and the Cabot Freshman Academy had the honor of hosting Attorney General Leslie Rutledge as she held a press conference to launch the “Prescription for Life” program in Lonoke County.
Attorney General Rutledge was joined by a number of law enforcement, education leaders, state and local dignitaries. Superintendent Dr. Tony Thurman welcomed everyone to the event and introduced the Attorney General.
“Prescription for Life” is an online program that helps students understand the dangers of prescription drug misuse and how to prevent abuse. More than 800 students at the Cabot Freshman Academy participated in the program. They also watched “Chasing the Dragon,” a documentary produced by the FBI and DEA about the opioid epidemic. Following the press conference, Attorney General Rutledge had the opportunity to visit one-on-one with students.
The “Prescription for Life” program is now in 85 schools across Arkansas. Thank you to Attorney General Leslie Rutledge for the choosing to visit the Cabot School District and helping educate our teens about prescription drug abuse.
It is an honor & privilege to launch Red Ribbon Week with my colleagues & fellow Arkansans, united in our fight against the opioid epidemic devastating our State. By end of week 835 more Arkansas students will have participated in #Prescription4Life. Thank you @cabotsd! https://t.co/qJ5qcBwGyC— Leslie Rutledge (@AGRutledge) October 23, 2018
