Testimonial: A Teacher and Mother of a Teenager

On March 31, 2012, I attended a three-hour seminar at Bristol Plymouth Regional Technical High School entitled “Journey Through Alcohol and Abuse.” During this seminar, Richard Barnes openly discussed his years of alcohol and drug addition and his successful, although difficult, recovery. As an 8th grade teacher and, most importantly, mother of a 17-year old son, I strongly recommend Mr. Barnes as a speaker to middle and high-school students. I would feel very comfortable having my son, as well as my students, attend a presentation given by Mr. Barnes. I believe that young adults will be able to connect with his openness and down-to-earth speaking style. Jacqui Delano
