      The Fairfield Area High School student group "Collaborating for Youth Coalition FAIRFIELD" received a State Award from the Pennsylvania State Association of Township Supervisors.   The presentation was made at the Southeastern Adams Volunteer Emergency Services Community Building in Hanover on November 12th at the annual Adams County Convention for township officials.  The award includes the plaque and a gift of $500.  The Students received the award as a result of their work in promoting positive development and an alcohol- and drug-free lifestyle among youth in the area.  The adult advisor of the group is Eileen Grenell, Substance Abuse Prevention Specialist, Center for Youth & Community Development. 



      The PSATS Award has been granted each year since 1993. This is the very first time any group from Adams County has received the award, so it's really quite an honor, in addition to history-making. Go, Fairfield!!!
