Florida's first lady is giving a sobering lesson on underage drinking this week. Her message made it to Wakulla County, where Crawfordville Cougars learned to "just say no!"
Columba Bush visits Florida schools each year during Alcohol Awareness Month to educate fifth graders on making smart choices.
This year Mrs. Bush teamed up with Florida's drug control director, Jim McDonough. Together they explained the dangers of alcohol use among teenagers.
Columba says, “I have seen families suffer from drug and alcohol abuse. I'm dedicating my life to prevent that. It's a bad experience for the whole community.”
The county currently educates fifth graders about the dangers of drugs and gangs. It's a program called SAVE, which stands for Substance Abuse and Violence Education.
