Red Lion Senior High held an assembly in regard to the ongoing heroin epidemic. Former athlete, Chris Herren, came and told his story in front of the students and staff on April 3rd. His story has impacted many people and expresses the major damages addiction can bring.
Chris Herren was a rising basketball star, on his way to becoming a professional player before drugs swept away his career. He was first 18 when his college roommate pressured him into snorting cocaine. Weeks later, Herren fell, broke his wrist, tested positive for drugs, then was kicked off the team.
Chris was grateful when he was given a second chance to play the following year. “I was living a double life,” said Herren referring to balancing basketball and partying.
The aroma of coffee grounds fills the air. It’s the perfect place to sit down and catch up with a friend over a warm, gooey, chocolate chip muffin. No - this isn’t your local Starbucks. This cafe can be found right through the doors of the library at Red Lion Area Senior High.
On Monday, May 7th, the Lion Grounds Cafe made its debut to the Red Lion body.
The Lion Grounds Cafe is a student run bistro located in the back doors at the library. It is open from 7:25 AM to 10:30 AM on Mondays for teachers only and on Fridays during all lunch shifts students may go to the cafe and purchase beverages and sit down.
The primary teachers behind the idea are Mrs. Ayers, Mr. Connor, Mrs. Stuth, and Mrs. Wagner. They say it is a great way for the life skills students to learn budgeting and business skills.
“The students work with purchasing goods and prepping food. They gain extensive experience in customer service from this,” said Mrs. Stuth.
Although the Lion Grounds Cafe came to a soft open on it’s first day, Mrs. Stuth says there are big plans for the future.
“We will eventually have a google document to set up deliveries of food throughout the day.”
The Lions Ground Cafe makes for a place for staff and students to come together over a cup of brewed coffee.
The Lion Grounds Cafe offers a variety of different beverages and food for staff and students. The students involved in the cafe learn how to budget and buy all the products needed for the bistro.
