Our thoughts have been with the family of Meaghan Bosch during this trial, and we hope that its completion gives a measure of closure to the family.
SMU representatives have attended the trial so that we can continue to learn as much as possible about the issue of substance abuse among young people, about how best to extend our efforts to educate students and prevent such future tragedies, and to help students who already have substance abuse issues. Our many education and prevention programs will continue, we will remain vigilant to needed changes, and we will persist in raising awareness among students and parents of the dangers and consequences of substance abuse.
What we have heard at the trial will allow us to examine whether we need to make additional changes to our programs aimed at preventing substance abuse.
