MOUNT VERNON — The Knox Substance Abuse Action Team (KSAAT) will hold its annual meeting March 13 from 4:30-6 p.m. at the Jetter School of Business located on the campus on Mount Vernon Nazarene University. The meeting is open to the public; an RSVP is requested.

Among the items to be presented at the meeting are results from the 2017 Pride Survey completed by all Knox County students in 6th, 8th, 10th, and 12th grades. The Pride Survey collects information on drugs and alcohol, violence, social influences and policies. The resulting data is presented in a series of easily read graphs and charts.

The annual meeting will also include a report on KSAAT’s current programs and plans for 2018, including a series of three presentations on drug-related topics this summer.
