In a Feb. 19 story in The SUN, El Pomar Foundation erroneously reported that the El Pomar Southwest Regional Council granted $20,000 to the Archuleta County Education Center.
In fact, the Southwest Council granted $20,000 to the Archuleta County School District 50 Joint to support the newly established School/Community Prevention Program (SCPP). SCPP — a partnership between the school district and community — will serve as an extension of the Regional Substance Abuse Prevention Program (RSAPP). RSAPP is a multi-year program for youth in Archuleta, Dolores, La Plata, Montezuma, and San Juan counties and at Fort Lewis College. Created by the Southwest Regional Council in 2006, RSAPP supports unprecedented regional collaboration in the fight against substance abuse. Anna Royer of Archuleta School District 50 Joint serves as the SCPP Coordinator.
