DENVILLE, NJ-- The week started off with a delayed opening, but the purple colors were flowing at Morris Knolls High School on Jan. 25 as the school prepared for a visit from Chris Herren, an ex-NBA star who battled addiction.

Morris Knolls has a chapter of The Herren Project's Project Purple Initiative. The goal of Project Purple is to reduce the stigma of addiction. 

"The THP Project Purple Initiative is a national anti-substance abuse initiative of The Herren Project, launched to break the stigma of addiction, bring awareness to the dangers of substance abuse and shed light on effective treatment practices,"

During the fall, Morris Knolls entered a video into a contest to win a chance to kick off their Go Purple Week. The Golden Eagles came out victorious, winning the chance to have Herren himself come and speak to the students and staff about Project Purple.

The students heard first hand about addiction, substance abuse, and how different treatment practices work. Head over to the Morris Knolls website to see the Golden Eagles winning video.
