PERRYSBURG - On Tuesday at 7 p.m., Perrysburg Schools will host an hour-long event for parents and students that focuses on stopping teenage drinking. The program is free and open to the public, and the district is encouraging parents and students from Perrysburg as well as other schools to attend. The event will be held in the Commodore Building Auditorium at 140 E. Indiana Ave.
"From our trendsetting student athlete drug testing policy to the fact that we were just selected to be the regional kickoff site for the Governor's anti-drug initiative, Start Talking, Perrysburg Schools strives to do all we can to keep children in our communities safe," stated Superintendent Thomas L. Hosler.
The presenters will be Cindy and Brian Hoeflinger, who lost their son, Brian, at age 18 in an alcohol-related car accident on Feb. 2, 2013. In the wake of this tragedy, the Hoeflinger family has chosen to cope with their grief by sharing their story in hopes that it may save the lives of other children in our community.
"As parents and as a family, we hope to bring meaning and benefit to a senseless tragedy, which has brought us to the focus of memorializing our son for the betterment of others," explained Brian Hoeflinger. "By sharing the life and death of our son, we hope to bring a new awareness to the problem of teens and alcohol and inspire positive change from our tragedy."
