COMMUNITY CHAMPIONS 

With the support of our community champions, we are creating a healthy, vibrant, drug-free community.

Sophia serves the families of WLCSD every day in her role as high school administrator and educational leader for the district.  She has been instrumental in collaborating with the coalition to bring prevention programming and resources to young people at WLN.  Sophia is the staff advisor for the Students Leading Students chapter at WLN and she has worked with those student leaders to bring Safe Driving Week, UMatter Week, and the Zen Den to her building.  She has designed prevention-focused assemblies and activities for mental health and wellness for students as well as staff.  Sophia is also an expert in restorative practice in student discipline and she has advised the coalition on models for non-punitive practices to help students and families move away from substance use and learn better coping skills.  Sophia also helped plan and facilitate our 2019 Prevention Summit and serves as a strong education sector leader for LACC.
