WINTERS – A nationally acclaimed program that focuses on topics such as teen sex, bullying and drugs will be presented at the Winters High School Library on Jan. 10, 2017.

Aim for Success, Inc. will present the program titled “Freedom to Succeed,” to junior high and high school students. The program will also be presented to parents. According to the release, the program focuses on legal reasons why teens should choose abstinence.

“While society strives to remove sexual boundaries,” said Marilyn Morris, president of Aim for Success, “state and federal laws are still enforced. These laws exist to protect potential victims of sexual crimes and punish those who break the law. Either way, young people need to know the law.”

The program will be presented to parents from 6-7 p.m. Monday, Jan. 9 at the high school library. This is a preview of the student program in which parents will learn creative ways to talk to their children about sex and avoid sexual activity until marriage.

“This is a must see event for anyone concerned about the problems associated with teen sexual activity,” Morris said.  

The program will be presented on Tuesday from 9-10 a.m. to high school students and from 10:15 to 11:15 a.m. to the 7th and 8th graders and from 12:45 to 1:45 p.m. to the 6th graders. Parents who wish to opt their children out of the program may do so.

Winters ISD Counselor Mandie England said the program is really all about choices.

“It is just making choices that set you up for success in your life,” England said.

The community is invited to attend the program.
