Spotlight: Responsible Behavior Urged This Prom Season

District Attorney Marian Ryan Speaks To High School Students and Parents

WOBURN – Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan is scheduled to speak to students, parents, and faculty, concerning making good choices as the prom season approaches.

In the next several months, District Attorney Ryan and members of her staff will speak at schools across the county, including Somerville High School, Lincoln Sudbury Regional High School, and Ashland High School, and at a meeting of the Middlesex League Principals.

“As wonderful as the prom, the parties, and graduation will be, our concern at this time of year is that some teenagers will make bad choices and something tragic will happen,” says District Attorney Ryan. “The reason I have spoken and continue to speak at school assemblies is because this is the time of year when all students need to be encouraged to have a plan to keep themselves and their friends safe. They need to make good choices and to be smart about how they will handle situations where alcohol or drugs are present.”

In addition to speaking to students, District Attorney Ryan and her staff will educate parents on the state’s Social Host Liability laws and the important role parents play in keeping their children safe during this exciting time of year.  Click here to read more: http://middlesexpartnershipsforyouth.com/news/pressRelease.php?release=104
