Liberty High wins drug pledge award
Liberty High School has been named Maryland Division A grand champion of the 1995 Nationwide Insurance Prom Promise program.
One-hundred-fifty-three schools in Maryland participated in the program. This is the fourth year Liberty has been a Prom Promise grand champion.
An awards assembly was held June 7. As grand champion, Liberty received $2,375. The school also received a $500 scrapbook from the Toyota Dealers Association of Baltimore.
In addition, the school won free tickets to Adventure World Theme Park in Largo for every student who signed the pledge to remain drug and alcohol free on prom night. There will be a Prom Promise Day at Adventure World June 22.
"Through their involvement in the program, these students have really shown this community that they are committed to being a positive influence to each other," said Gerry Eckenrode, a Nationwide insurance agent volunteer. "We hope that teens will remember what they've experienced through Prom Promise so they'll continue to be role models within the community."
