Drug Sweep & Awareness at BCS

Drug Awareness Program and Drug Search Conducted at Boyd Christian School


     Chief Deputy Danice Taylor and Captain Deke Stone of the Grundy County Sheriff’s Department recently spoke to the middle and high school students at FC Boyd Christian School about the dangers of illicit drugs. Lane Dix, BCS Bible teacher said “Chief Taylor and Captain Stone both related personal stories from their years in law enforcement to impress on the student body that a life of drug use will result in a ruined life!”  They specifically covered the risks and effects of marijuana, methamphetamine, and misuse of prescription medications.

      Chief Taylor said “I am thankful for the opportunities I have to speak with young people.  I want to help prevent as many people as possible from getting involved in drugs!”  Chief Taylor and Captain Stone also gave the students an educational brochure with some of the effects listed and helpline telephone numbers.  People who use methamphetamine may experience anxiety, confusion, insomnia, mood swings, and violent behavior. They may also show signs of psychosis, such as paranoia, visual and auditory hallucinations, and delusions (for example, the feeling of insects crawling under the skin).  They may suffer severe structural and functional changes in areas of the brain associated with emotion and memory as well.  Some of the effects of marijuana use include paranoia, hallucinations, difficulty with concentration/coordination, increased heart rate, enhanced cancer risk, and increased risk of infertility.  They also discussed the dangerous and illegal impacts of using, buying, stealing, or borrowing someone else’s prescription medications. 

     Substance use can lead to problems at school, home, work, and in relationships, causing one to feel isolated, ashamed or helpless. The first step is to recognize there is a problem.  This takes tremendous courage and strength, but recovery is within reach. If one is ready to make a change and willing to get help, he/she can overcome the addiction and build a satisfying, drug-free life. If someone is worried about himself/herself or a friend or family member’s drug use, it’s important to know that help is available. They may call the Girls and Boys National helpline that is confidential and available 24/7 at   1-800-448-3000 or call 1-800-662-HELP in the U.S. to reach a free referral helpline from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.

    Principal Tabetha Sullens also had the Tennessee Highway Patrol recently conduct a random drug search on the school campus.  The state troopers had their drug detection dog to search the high school students’ vehicles and lockers for any illegal drugs.  Their search found the Boyd campus to be 100% drug free!  Boyd is grateful for the support of law enforcement, parents, BCS staff, and District Attorney, Lisa Zavogiannis’ annual BCS Drug Awareness Program in helping ensure the students stay drug free.  Principal Sullens states “I am very proud to honestly say we are clear on campus.  When you send your child to Boyd, they are safe here.  I plan to conduct unannounced, random drug searches and sweeps yearly to help ensure our safety.”

Safety on Social Media

Drew Milligan recently taught a wonderful lesson regarding Safety on Social Media in the Bible classroom. I will share his power-point, if you are interested, just email... tsullens@fcbcs.org. I think all students need to see his view and listen to his lesson. We plan to teach a course this summer regarding these issues.
