 Missouri Coalition of the Year


Rockwood Drug-Free Coalition has been recognized as the 2013 Coalition of the Year by ACT Missouri and the Missouri Division of Behavioral Health. The award – presented at the 2013 year-end annual substance abuse prevention conference in Lake Ozarks, Missouri – honors a coalition that has demonstrated sustained excellence in the areas of community outreach, advocacy, media, education and training.  In March 2014, Rockwood School District recognized the coalition for this distinction.
