We are pleased to inform you of an upcoming event that all parents should attend. The presentation, which is brought to you by Groton-Dunstable Regional High School in partnership with the Groton Lecture Fund, highlights the tragic story of Tyler Campbell. There will be a presentation during the day for students, and we are asking all able parents to attend the 60 minute evening presentation.  

Tyler's parents, Wayne and Christie, having taken on the mission of informing parents and students of the dangers of drug addiction.  Tyler's story is not unique, but it does highlight just how rapidly one can fall to the grips of addiction.  Tyler was from a well-to-do suburb in Ohio; he was a star athlete who eventually fulfilled a dream of playing division 1 football. 
After suffering a football injury he was prescribed Vicodin, and the tragic story begins there. 

I have included several items for you to preview including a feature on 60 Minutes, a link to their website where you can find more information about his story and download a feature on HBO, and some detailed information on Tyler Campbell.
