As a former Chair of the Red Ribbon Committee I was fortunate enough to see how impactful the community, parents, and students can be in the fight against substance abuse. Kansas Family Partnership was able to bring together a group of professionals, parents and students from all over the state of Kansas and come together as one to help educate, prevent and outreach to the different communities all over this state.
Chairing the Red Ribbon Committee was a great experience for me professionally and personally. I was able to bring statistics to my professional career as well as in the schools where my girls attend. I was more educated in knowing what to expect and how I can be an advocate in helping prevent substance abuse and use in among our youth today. Even today, as I changed careers from being a LMSW (Social Worker) to an Insurance Agent with Shelter Insurance, I still use the knowledge base from the Red Ribbon Committee to help educate those who come into my office. I will continue to support the committee in whatever way I can and feel very passionate about the work that Kansas Family Partnership has done to help continue this wonderful mission.
