Today Ask, Listen, Learn experienced southern hospitality firsthand at Capitol Heights Middles School in Montgomery, Alabama with Attorney General Luther Strange.
When we say we we’re taking on Alcohol Awareness Month in a BIG way—it’s not only because we’re visiting schools all across the country teaching kids to say “No” to underage drinking. It’s also because we spent the day with two “huge” role models for Alabama youth. Attorney General Luther Strange who measures in at an impressive six feet and nine inches (which he made sure to remind us is taller than Lebron James) and Capitol Heights Principal Bobby Abrams, a former NFL linebacker and three time Super Bowl Champion who played for several teams including the NY Giants and the Dallas Cowboys!!
The kids always love hearing from their superstar Principal but were especially excited to meet the Attorney General and hear why living an important lifestyle and saying no to underage drinking is so important to him. While we’re pretty sure genes had something to do with it, AG Luther Strange contributes some of his awesome height to staying healthy and active as a kid and taking care of himself. Growing up, one of Luther’s favorite things to do was to play basketball (and we’re pretty sure he must have been good). He loves working with the Century Council and as a dad he knows how important it is to #JointheConvo during Alcohol Awareness Month and talk to our youth about making smart choices.
The AG even explained to the kids what he does as the Alabama Attorney General. He described himself as the “Top Cop” which the kids loved! And before we knew it the kids were chanting “Top Cop” to get everyone excited for the Ask, Listen, Learn game!
At the end of the day, we couldn’t have had more fun at Capitol Heights in Montgomery Alabama talking to kids about saying no to underage drinking. We’re so grateful to our positive role models Principal Bobby Abrams and Attorney General Luther Strange! Thanks for doing your part to #JoinTheConvo during April for Alcohol Awareness Month!
