Nationally Recognized Speaker and Founder of SADD Coming to Speak at ULM

Bob Anastas, the founder and former executive director of Students Against Driving Drunk (SADD), has developed a new program titled Check Into a Winning Life. With the help of local Anheuser-Busch wholesaler, Marsala Beverage, Anastas is bringing his presentation to the University of Louisiana at Monroe campus. Recognizing that students face many other challenges and decisions beyond those about drinking and drunk driving, Check Into a Winning Life focuses on the development of key life skills, such as self-discipline, self-esteem, motivation, maturity and leadership.

The event will be held today, Wednesday, November 5th from 7:30-8:30 p.m. in the University Conference Center on the 7th floor of the ULM Library. This program is required for all NCAA CHAMPS/Life Skills Programming. Anastas will be speaking to other groups on campus tomorrow.

Anastas schedule is as follows: Wed., Nov. 5th at 7:30 p.m. on the 7th floor of the ULM Library (for athletes) and at a faculty luncheon on Thurs., Nov. 6th at 11:30 a.m. on the 7th floor of the ULM Library (for faculty). He will also speak on Thurs., Nov. 6th at 5 p.m. in the Nursing Auditorium (for Greeks) and again that evening at 6:30 p.m. in the Airway Sciences Auditorium (for Dorm Personnel, Residential Life, and Students).
