Vaping Education and Prevention Workshop

Please join us for a vaping education and prevention workshop. Octavia Marsh, executive director of Hanover Cares, and Shelley Cray, Hanover County Public Schools intervention counselor, will lead the workshop on Monday, May 20 from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. in the library at Patrick Henry High School.

You will learn about electronic cigarettes (including the infamous JUUL), the harmful nature of these products, addictive properties of nicotine, how to recognize signs of use, brief prevention and intervention strategies, ways to combat this epidemic through routine conversations at home, and the shocking facts and statistics that have led teen vaping to be considered an epidemic. We will serve refreshments.

Graduation Tickets

If your parent/guardian is a full-time or part-time Hanover County employee, you can reserve 11 seats in the VIP seating section at graduation. To do this, the Hanover County employee must email Leslie Nuckols and include:

  • His/her name
  • Position in the county
  • The Patrick Henry senior's full name
  • Number of seats to reserve (up to 11)

The deadline for requests is on June 1. Again, these are reserved seats, not additional tickets. Each Patrick Henry senior will only receive 11 total tickets. The Patrick Henry senior does not need a ticket.
