Last Wednesday students had the pleasure of watching a presentation from musician Robb Nash. He spoke about many of the issues that teens face and overcoming those issues. He made quite an impact on students inspiring them to talk with those who can help. Students are reminded that Wm. E. Hay has many people in place to assist with whatever you may be going through.
