EXETER WEST GREENWICH PREVENTION COALITION PRESS RELEASE Exeter West Greenwich Youth Address Substance Use in Silver Award Feb. 24, 2012- The Exeter West Greenwich Wellness Coalition hosted two very special guests at their monthly coalition meeting. Kaitlyn DiPietro and Emma Ruggieri, both ninth grade students at Exeter West Greenwich High School, presented their Girls Scout Silver Award to the coalition. The Girl Scout Silver Award is the highest award a Girl Scout Cadette can earn. Scouts demonstrate that they are a leader who is organized, determined, and dedicated to improving the community. Earning the award puts these scouts among an exceptional group of girls who have used their knowledge and leadership skills to make a difference in the world. Ms. DiPietro and Ms. Ruggieri logged over 55 hours each working with a mentor, Mrs. Pearson. They researched the topic of substance use and put together a website with information about the risks of alcohol, marijuana, and electronic cigarettes/vapes. They also created posters with QR codes that bring the reader to the online website. The youth demonstrated that the material will be sustainable as it is in electronic format, not simply paper and pen. The EWG Wellness Coalition has a mission to prevention substance use and promote wellness across the lifespan. Coordinator Dr. Paul Mangino expressed his gratitude for the excellent materials and hard work the two put into this project. Joyce Anderle, Student Assistance Counselor at the school, works with both students and was incredibly impressed with their work and the presentation. “These fourteen year old girls are more like twenty four years olds in their wisdom and maturity.” As to why they chose substance use as a topic for their silver award, Emma and Kaitlyn stated “We really wanted to do something that we have been affected by. Many of our friends and family have struggled with drug or substance use in one shape or another, which led us to our project idea.” The coalition members invited the youth to continue to work with the coalition to address youth substance use together.
