A Wednesday evening town hall event at Dakota Wesleyan University in Mitchell filled Wagner Chapel with students eager to hear community leaders speak on the dangers of underage drinking.
Panelists were program emcee Jen Ross, a community prevention networker with Dakota Counseling Institute; Davison County State’s Attorney Pat Smith; Highway Patrol Trooper John Lord; Shane Thill, Mitchell High School assistant principal and director of Second Chance High School; and Vicki Wiese, vice president for academic affairs at Mitchell Technical Institute.
A recent survey of health risks shows that South Dakotans have reported drinking more than the national average.
The alcohol-use topic is part of a 275-page study released by the State Department of health entitled “The Health Behaviors of South Dakotans.”
