Several weeks ago in an ongoing effort to raise awareness, Segear and his TREND students visited a local alcohol distributor and put alcohol awareness stickers on package goods, to remind legal adult not to serve to underage. Segear said our goal is to prevent an alcohol related tragedy. 

These two programs were sponsored by the efforts of Beth Ann Nikolich the Berkeley Heights Municipal Coordinator and Prevention Links the Union County Drug and Alcohol resource center.
