State Attorney General Leslie Rutledge unveiled the Prescription for Life program on campus yesterday. She presented plans to educate students on the dangers of using prescription drugs for nonprescription reasons.  

  “The idea is to make kids aware of the dangers of prescription drugs. They’re prescription drugs for a reason, otherwise they’d be over the counter and anybody could go buy them at the drugstore. But this was a launch of that program. We were the first school in Arkansas to be involved in it and the first school in the United States to be involved in it so it’s quite an honor for the attorney general to come and use Southside as a launching point for this new program,” principal Wayne Haver said.

  The program primarily serves health classes, but anyone can access the online unit.
