Shaheen works with LEAD, Winni students


01 15 Shaheen Winni Middle 

U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen visited Winnisquam Regional Middle School recently to learn more about its drug prevention program, Project LEAD. Shaheen met with Tilton Police Chief Robert Cormier, LEAD officers and teachers, the principal, superintendent and local elected officials to discuss how they all work together to spread the anti-drug message and attack the problem from the side of prevention, getting to our young people before they become addicted. Shaheen attended a full seventh-grade LEAD class and spent time discussing the importance of LEAD, how to fund it in a sustainable way, and that she would carry information about the program and its message back to Washington with her.
