Devan Ogburn, Tobacco Free Youth Advocate
Ms. Devan Ogburn has been, for over a year, working to spread the word about the dangers of tobacco across the state of Maryland (in particular to the youths). A national campaign has recently been launched and she is also a part of that campaign. Below is a short clip from just one of the many interviews that was recently conducted with WPMT-Harrisburg. We are proud of you Devan!

School Emergency Preparedness Information
The Department of Safety and Security has planned and developed a school emergency preparedness training program for parents and guardians of St Mary's County Public School (SMCPS) students. The program is designed to provide parents and guardians information on school emergency preparedness, increase understanding of required school emergency drills, and specifically explain what they can do to help and assist during the mitigation of any school emergency. County-wide training sessions (open to the public) have been scheduled to take place in the Board meeting room (Central Office) on November 17, 2014 at 6:00 pm, January 14, 2014 at 6:00 pm, and March 3, 2015 at 6:00 pm.
To further communicate the availability of the training events, the Department of Safety and Security, in conjunction with Media Productions Coordinator and the Dr. James A Forrest Career and Technology Center, has developed a public service announcement (PSA) and school drill training video with additional information for parents and guardians. The PSA is designed to be shown at school sponsored events throughout the school year. A press release will be made the week before each of the county-wide training sessions. The PSA and drill training video are available for viewing via the SMCPS home page or through the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mM1nT0fm9bY&list=PLkPoZgypF3AUBMndQffjPBg-Gu7aYCeKF
