On Friday, Oct. 18, Boardman High School held its seventh annual YES Fest. The Anti-Drug Event was created to challenge students to go a step further than just saying "No to Drugs" by saying "Yes" to something positive. This year, the focus is on the future.

"We have filled our gym with hundreds of volunteers and local agencies over the past seven years, to encourage volunteerism," said Associate Principal Anne Bott. "We want to make career opportunities and options the focus this year, so there will be dozens of skilled trades, manufacturing, medical and business professionals, as well as college and military representatives."

More than 1,200 High School Students and over 650 Boardman Glenwood Junior High seventh and eightht graders were involved. They attended an inspirational program in the Boardman Performing Arts Center, followed by an education/training/career fair with more than 50 stations to visit.
