Rep. Grill participates in "Family University" at Park Hill High School

Jefferson City – Representative Jason Grill, D-Parkville, last week took part in the Park Hill Community Drug Task Force’s free program for families and students on topics that included bullying, behavioral disorders, college planning, diversity and personal safety and substance abuse. Rep. Grill participated as a celebrity server and helped serve breakfast to all the parents and students attending the event.

“I was thrilled to take part in this important “Family University” event,” said Rep. Grill. “These are great topics that all families and students should discuss and educate themselves on.”

The event was broken into four different divisions. Elementary students learned about risk taking, bullying and personal safety and how to avoid danger. Middle school students took part in programs addressing alcohol usage as well as tobacco and drug use. High school students were given information on diversity, leadership, and college planning and personality typology. Parents attended a session that discussed Internet safety, being a “love and logic” parent, and autism.

“I want to thank the Park Hill Drug Task Force and Park Hill High School for inviting me to be a part of this event and I look forward to next year,” said Rep. Grill.
