Akshar and YES honor hundreds of local student leaders throughout the county

ENDICOTT– Senator Fred Akshar and YES Safe Choices were joined by local parents, teachers and school administrators to honor 645 Broome, Tioga and Chenango YES LEADers at the YES LEADers Change Lives Recognition Reception.



YES LEADers are middle and high school students who visit classrooms and use hands-on activities to teach local elementary school students about the dangers of substance abuse, the importance of self-esteem and the value in making healthy choices as they grow up. “The amount of time, effort and energy that YES LEADers dedicate to our community is amazing,” said Senator Akshar. “They’re touching countless lives by teaching invaluable lessons to younger kids about committing to making safe choices.”
