Over 400,000 students across the United States are involved in SADD – which is Students Against Destructive Decisions. And one North Dakotan has stood out among them.
Lauren Roscoe is a senior at New Rockford-Sheyenne High School. She has been chosen as SADD’s Student of the Year. Roscoe was honored this afternoon by Governor Doug Burgum and the First Lady. The organization promotes students to make positive life decisions throughout their lives. She joined 6 years ago and hasn’t looked back.
“I loved what it stood for. Advocating for the no-use lifestyle, taking away the stigma around mental health. I really just wanted to be a part of something that was larger than myself,” said Roscoe.
Because of this honor, Roscoe will travel around the country as the organization’s advocate.
And next summer-she has an internship at the U-S Department of Transportation.
