Stacey Ashmore—Community Outreach Coordinator/Educator

Candy Carlson—Resource Center Assistant/Inventory Control
She is our go-to-person who provides all of us with direction on what we need for programs and where to find it.

Meryl works tirelessly with our Community Partners to lead them in an effort to educate and motivate our community to protect their health by preventing exposure to second-hand smoke or by improving their heath through smoking cessation and a healthier lifestyle.

Troy McBride—Youth Prevention Educator
Now on a part-time basis, after many years as our Community Officer Drug Education Coordinator and prior to that a DARE officer, Troy enjoys nothing more than a classroom full of youth asking him questions about the problems of marijuana use or gun safety.

He views all children as eager to learn the truth and the consequences of risky and illegal behavior.
