Pictured from left are Officer Deanna Demniski, who presented the program, junior class officers Jason D’Antonio, president; Alexis McGhee, historian; and Abby Harvey, treasurer; guidance counselor Jennifer Williams; and school principal Christopher Dormer.

Oxford Area High School recently held an assembly featuring a presentation by the Philadelphia Police Department’s Heads Up program. Heads Up, Heroin Education and Dangerous Substance Understanding Program, is a brutally honest and often graphic overview of the true damage and destruction that drugs continue to cause among all age groups. The program was established to attack drug problems from a preventative standpoint, and every Philadelphia police officer is required to present the program to as many groups of young people as possible.
