SADD FOUNDER ADDRESSES
– Bob Anastas, founder of Students Against Drug Driving (SADD), addresses
Southeastern Louisiana University students at a special forum held Tuesday
night as part of the university’s observance of Alcohol Awareness Week.
Anastas, who formed SADD after two of his former student athletes died
in alcohol-related driving accidents, said personal turmoil and peer pressure
are the leading factors associated with teenage abuse of alcohol and drugs.
Following his talk, students participated in “Mocktail-gating,” a non-alcoholic
drink mixing competition between student organizations with a tailgating
theme recognizing Southeastern’s return of football next year. Anastas’
visit was sponsored by Champagne Beverage, Inc. of Covington.
