On Feb. 12, Wooster High School (WHS) will welcome the band, Attaboy, for both student and parent performances to raise awareness about the negative effects of drug and alcohol abuse, aligning with Wooster’s STAND (Standing Together Against Narcotics & Drugs) program.
Attaboy’s presentations will be sponsored by Wenco Wendy’s Franchises, which shares a commitment to making an impact on the community both inside and outside the walls of Wendy’s restaurants. WHS was selected as one of this year’s eligible recipient of a fully funded school assembly presentation.
Attaboy combines energic and relevant music with a powerful spoken message, positively encouraging students who are regularly faced with negative influences more effectively than ever before.
“We are very much looking forward to Attaboy’s performances at Wooster High School, which will provide information to students in a manner that’s relevant to them,” said Heidi Haas, associate principal at WHS and coordinator of the STAND program. “It’s important that our students and community know that we recognize there is a drug epidemic and that we are trying in every way we can to help students combat these influences. We want to give them the skills and resources to make better choices.”
The group will perform on Tuesday, Feb. 12 during the school day for students and at 7-8:30 p.m. p.m. in the Large Group Instruction Room (LGIR) at Wooster High School for parents. The presentations will include a short Q&A session.
