Chris is a former NBA player and motivational speaker who will share his story with the student body at Shepaug the morning of the 16th. Another presentation for the public will be at 7 pm that evening. His story goes from being a high school basketball star and NBA player to a patient in a rehab facility, all while struggling with addiction for over 14 years. Chris Herren's Project Purple is designed to break the stigma of addiction, bring awareness of the dangers of substance abuse and educate and encourage youth to maintain a healthy, substance-free lifestyle.
