Dia Grabb Winfrey, 2001 LCHS graduate, who works for the Department of Juvenile Justice as a Juvenile Probation and Parole Officer spoke to the 8th grade about the consequences of poor decisions and what will happen to them if they break the law. Mrs. Winfrey was very straight forward and honest with the students about what can happen to them if they are in possession of drugs, to watch out for adults trying to get them to handle their drugs, the very real threat of sex trafficking, prominence of gangs, being mindful of what they send over their phones and social media, and what goes on in a youth detention center. Students asked question afterwards. This is the third year Mrs. Windfrey has spoken to the eighth grade. She enjoys talking to students in hopes that she may help teenagers and influence them to think before they do something that could change the rest of their lives.
