Project Daris has been busy this 2018-2019 school year. We have seen almost 10,000 students just in the fall of 2018. Project Daris inspires the students to write one sentence stating what they will do to help end the drug epidemic. Here are a couple of the letters we have:

Author: Shannon Kennedy Garrett

Shannon worked as a pharmacist for 24 years until she felt called to do something to help end the drug epidemic. She is passionate about the children and feels they are the answer to ending this epidemic. Since most children today are being raised by relatives the children have seen first hand what drug addiction can do to their family. Therefore the children have a vested interest to say no to drugs and help end the drug epidemic. This is why educating students is where Shannon places all her time and energy. After being diagnosed with cancer in 2013, Shannon's entire perspective on life changed. She began a blog called Grow Thru It which you can find on Facebook. She feels this blog inspires people of all ages to grow through the hardships and experiences we all face. Shannon is married and has 3 children, ages 3 to 16.
