'Tough choices' for teenagers

3 / 3

PRESCOTT--Pastor Amy Fondroy Eich of Joy Lutheran Church talked to the Prescott Kiwanis June 27 about the goals of helping teenagers.

The bulk of her speech revolved around the “Tough Choices” presentation nationally-known speaker Mike McGowan did in Prescott earlier in April. McGowan spoke at Malone Elementary, Prescott Middle School, Prescott High School and then spoke to the community at night about educating children and parents about the tough choices teenagers have to make. The presentation was sponsored by the school district and the Prescott Area Churches Association.

Eich said the presentation was well-received and Prescott is working on getting him back in February.

“Kids will remember an adult who treats them with respect,” she said.

Eich said there are those in the community who hope to take it one step further.   

“How can we create more opportunities to bring people together?” she said, adding possibilities include activity night or Friday night activities.
