Many of you know that Chadron High School began a Cardinals Committed club to promote healthy lifestyle choices including: chemical health, nutrition, sleep and character.

Since that time he has presented in Chadron two different occasions for our students and staff.

This is an excellent opportunity and parents and students are encouraged to attend.  Below are the details about the presentation on February 20th.
