The Maryland Heights Police Department is sponsoring an all-school assembly from 9:15 a.m. to noon on March 7 at Grace Church. The event will feature guest speaker Chris Herren as a way to address the dangers of substance abuse.

Officer Mark Storer is a School Resource Officer at the high school and is a member of the Maryland Heights Police Department. He said this assembly will provide a strong message about a problem on the rise.

“This is an important topic to be discussed since we have seen an increase in the number of calls regarding overdoses in the community.”

Each summer, Pattonville’s SRO officers Mike Mooney and Mark Storer hit the streets and answer calls.

“The last call that I handled this summer was a kid who had overdosed in his bathroom,” Storer said. “We see it, and it’s starting to happen more and more often.”

The assembly will feature speaker Chris Herren who will share his story regarding his basketball dream coming to a harsh end after substance abuse overcame him.

There will be a special schedule in place for the week and for Wednesday, March 7.

In order to accommodate all students attending this assembly, students will be transported to Grace Church by bus after 4th hour and will return to school in time for lunches. All classes will be adjusted in duration to fit the schedule.
