Chisum Independent School District Superintendent Diane Stegall addresses the Lamar County Commissioners Court on Monday asking the commissioners to execute a resolution supporting the “Together We Can” initiative. At Stegall’s request, the commissioners resolved to work hand-in-hand with law enforcement, churches, parents, students, teacher adn other community organizations to support this project to eliminate the use of alcohol abuse by minors, illegal druges, bullying, harassment, or violence of any kind, to provide a safe and enjoyable enviornment for everyone in our community.
“We are concerned about the youth of our community,” Stegall told the commissioners. “It is our responsibility, of everyone who makes up a community, to address these issues. Talk is good, but we’re gonna need action.”
The project is working to put all community resources together to address these problems. While no solution is yet forthcoming, the resolution by the commissioners, passed unanimously, acknowledges the need to work together to create a safe and peaceful community.
“Together We Can”, arose out of a think tank brainstorming session held in late October at Chisum. Stegall says the group next will meet with Police Chief Bob Hundley to explore action plans to combat these rampant problems in area schools.
