It was a busy week for the Drug Free Community Grant. On Monday evening, we received a message from Helen Hernandez, director of the Drug Free Community Grant inviting our coalition to a White House Roundtable on Wednesday. Milan Karna, the program coordinator in Wood County, was our adult representative and Joshua Bowen from Northwood was to be our student representative. With only 24 hours to make this all happen, we were unfortunately unable to get all of Josh's security clearances approved and he was unable to go. However, Milan made it out to Washington and was part of the Roundtable conference with President Trump. You can watch a portion of the meeting at
The majority of the press coverage was President Trump's interaction with the youth, but Milan represented us well. It is my understanding that General Dean personally selected the coalitions that attended, which speaks highly of all of the great work done by and in support of the Drug Free Community Grant and the youth in Wood County.
