SADD play provides important message for students, while “The X-Plan” offers a way out

on April 19, 2017

Each year around this time, the high school gets ready for annual end-of-year celebrations – proms, parties, graduation.

And every year, the school and community work to raise awareness among students about being safe and making good decisions. This year, the message was delivered a little differently, with students writing, producing and performing an original play for their peers.

Members of the high school’s Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) club, in cooperation with members of the high school drama club, presented the original play, “One Choice,” written by a WVHS student. The play was about a promising senior – a scholar-athlete – who could have made a good choice one night at a party, but didn’t, with disastrous and life-altering consequences.

Principal Larry Washington spoke to the juniors and seniors in the audience, stressing how much so many people care about them, including their teachers and administrators. He implored them to make good decisions – to stay safe.
