Chris Herren speaks to RHS students
Chris Herren spoke for over an hour to RHS students on Wednesday about the substance abuse that nearly cost him his life. The details of Herren’s 14 year battle with cocaine, oxycontin and heroin addiction held the attention of the high school students who packed the RHS theater during periods 6 and 7.
The Veritas will report on the presentation and student reaction in the October issue, due out on October 11th.
Prior to the assembly, Herren sat down with Veritas editor, Leah O’Bryan. The tape of her interview will be shown on this website.
Students prepared for Chris Herren’s presentation which kicked off Rockland Cares’ Week of Hope by wearing purple in support of Project Purple to stand up to substance abuse.
