Rising above


Indian Lake High School freshman Tyler Butterfield, right, assists Indian Lake Middle School students with writing about different issues that they want to rise above, including drugs, alcohol, peer pressure and bullying during an Above the Influence training Thursday for ILMS eighth-graders. The session was led by ILHS SADD members and Logan County Drug Free Youth Coalition’s Youth Council, with assistance from Consolidated Care Inc. Participants also watched a video created by high school students, where the older peers described various ways they can rise above peer pressure and other negative influences in society.
