Mike Green, a nationally respected leader in the field of alcohol and drug education, will present "Kegs, Kicks, Kompetition" on Monday, Oct. 30, at Frostburg State University.
This event, which is free and open to the public, will take place at 7 p.m. in the Lane Center's Alice R. Manicur Assembly Hall, formerly known as the Multi-Use Room. It is the last in a series of talks sponsored by the S.A.F.E. Office and BURG as part of National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Month.
Green has brought his message to more than 1,000 campuses nationwide during the past decade. As a recovering alcoholic, he offers a personal perspective on the social and peer pressures unique to college, as well as the myths versus the realities of alcohol abuse and its impact on the individual student and the institution. His goal is to make drug and alcohol awareness an integral part of every student's life.
As president of Collegiate Consultants on Drugs and Alcohol, Green consults with student affairs and athletic departments at numerous universities, including Temple, Villanova, Akron and Hobart. At Senator Bill Bradley's request, he developed drug and alcohol programs for the New Jersey high schools. He has produced a series of videotapes that include many of his acclaimed "think before you drink" techniques.
A graduate of West Chester University, Green was recently named a Distinguished Alumnus. He has played and coached football at both the high school and college levels.
