Danville High School had a guest speaker in Gravely Hall on Thursday, Nov. 7, named Forest Q.

Forest Q talked about his experience about drugs and how it affected him back in his high-school days.

“All my life, I’ve been trying to fight drugs, but they caught up to me especially in my high-school years” said Forest Q.

DHS Principal Thad Elmore wanted to have Forest Q come in and talk to the students of Danville High School because, “It is a perfect opportunity for you all to learn what happens when you use drugs and how it can affect your life.”

“My friend offered me drugs, and I told him to get that stuff out of my face. I don’t want to do this anymore. So I walked off, hoping that my problem of drugs were no longer happening in my life but my friends kept pressuring me until I finally said ‘no’ to drugs,” said Forrest Q.
