Both Andrea May and Edwin Melendez of Drug Free Hendry attended the 5 Star Award luncheon in Sarasota where colleagues from all over gathered and listened to inspirational messages from a dynamic lineup of guest speakers.
The keynote speaker at the event was Senator Darryl Rouson, who has championed the cause of Mental Health and Substance Abuse in the Florida Legislature.
Rouson told a very powerful story about his own personal experiences with addiction and how he became the successful man that he is today.
Also, the “Kick-off” for the day was a special guest from the National Football League (NFL), “Ike” Alama Francis. Ike explained his own story of inspiration and what his foundations are doing for our young people in Florida communities.
