The Dothan Civic Center was full of high school students all day Saturday who want to make a difference in their school and their community.

They celebrated making good choices and doing the right things.

The Students Against Destructive Decisions group held its state conference.

What SADD wants us to know is that high school students across the state are going to great measures to make better decisions about their life.

"We inform people about the dangers of destructive decisions," Sydney Kirkland of Dothan High School said.

"We deal with helping people in the community stop the use of alcohol and the use of drugs," Brooke beavers of Rehobeth High School said.

"I really wanted to be in SADD because of the tailgating parties and all that, but I found out it's more about students against destructive decisions,” Braxton Mckissic of Dothan H High School said. “They don't want us to grow up in life to be nothing.

The focus is a positive outlook on everyday decisions that face high school students. SADD wants to encourage teenagers through different methods to pave a path for success through high school and college.

The program also focuses on tobacco use, texting and driving, bullying and of course drugs and alcohol.

Their goal is to let nothing stand in front of them as life comes at them.

This is the first time the state conference has been held in Dothan.
