Greenbrier School District is excited to announce a great opportunity for our students’ families. On Tuesday, January 15th, at 6:00 pm, the district will host a parent night led by Stephanie Siete, Drug Prevention Specialist.
Stephanie Siete began her career with Community Bridges, Inc. (CBI) in 2002 as a drug prevention specialist and has worked her way up in the prevention field educating students, teachers, parents, police and universities about drug dangers and trends. Over the years, she moved into the roles of the Public Relations Director and Community Education Director to her recent position of Public Information Officer (PIO) as of March 1, 2017. In an ever changing world of substance abuse, the role of the PIO is to inform the public, first responders and corporate offices (etc.) via media and trainings about new drugs, risks to use and exposure, and provide resources for help on care and addiction. As the PIO, Stephanie’s job requires her to partner with important community collaborators. She has spent her career training and networking with local and national police and fire departments, healthcare providers and governmental agencies. She has hosted seminars for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Arizona School Resource Officer Association (ASROA), High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA), International Narcotics Interdiction Association (INIA), and was featured as a key note speaker for the National Association of School Resource Officers (NASRO) in 2018. Her recent work with the FBI earned her the honor of the 2016 FBI Director’s Community Leadership Award – Phoenix Division. She was recognized in Washington DC by former FBI Director, James Comey, in April 2017.
Please mark your calendars to attend and learn from this great resource we are bringing to Greenbrier, Arkansas! Contact your school counselor with any questions. The event is open to guardians of students in all of our schools and will be held in the Greenbrier High School Fine Arts Center.
