NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. -- Parents and students at New Rochelle High School will have a chance to attend the seventh annual Family University program at the school on Monday, March 14.
Family University will offer a variety of parent workshops that will address adolescent development and strategies for promoting their healthy development, in addition to workshops for middle and high school students aimed at helping them understand how to make choices that lead to personal happiness and well-being
The evening is co-sponsored by Families Organized to Curb the Use of Substances and New York Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital.
Mark Sterner will be the keynote speaker for parents and high school students. Just three months before college graduation, Sterner and four of his fraternity brothers -- and best friends -- headed to spring break. On the final night, they decided the least drunk would drive home. The next morning, three of the men were dead, and Mark lay in the hospital critically injured and facing three felony counts of DUI manslaughter. Instead of being the first in his family to graduate college, Sterner ended up the first member of his family to go to prison for his role in the death of his three friends.
Tei Street will be the middle school parent keynote speaker. Street serves as the education director for Partners Achieving Community Transformation on behalf of The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. She is also the founder and sole proprietor of StreetTalk with the “Amazing” Tei Street, a national motivational speaking, training and educational consulting company.
Street will address topics fundamental to raising healthy, well-adjusted young people in a very fast paced world!
