NL SADD: The Force Awakens

by Rachael Pishtek

On Saturday afternoon, NL SADD's student leaders will be gathering at the Alerus Center in Grand Forks to put the finishing touches on what is about to be the BEST Northern Lights SADD Conference in recent history.

The choice for what this year's conference theme was simple: The Force Awakens, not only in reference to the Star Wars movie franchise, but to signify that Northern Lights SADD has taken on a new energy and focus with our release of an updated Reality Check and Constitution.

The conference will officially kick off at 4:30 PM with registration and conclude with the traditional Candlelight Ceremony at 1:00 PM on Tuesday. Presenters, speakers and exhibitors will be gathering at the Alerus from all across the SADD region, including AAA, Altru, the National Guard and the North Dakota State Fair. We are looking forward to motivating these high achieving students to create the best communities that they possibly can. If you are unable to attend the conference, find us on Periscope: @nlsadd to catch some of the action live! 

We hope to see you there and "may the Force be with you"!
