The First Lady is so committed to the prong of our mission dealing with underage drinking.  I imagine having been a Principal for many years is the driving force.  What ever is her driving force, I have wittnessed first hand  her dedicated  committement to prevent underage drinking.  I want to personally thank Sally Ganem for her commitment to travel the state to talk at Town Hall meetings and for meeting with community coalitions in order to better educate the public about how our teens die (monthly) in alcohol-related motor vehicle crashes.

Nebraska was fortunate to have had the Surgeon General in our state to talk about the 2007 “Call To Action”. http://www.surgeongeneral.gov/topics/underagedrinking/

It should come as no small surprise that Sally Ganem was front and center in that arrangement.  Her valuable expertise was used then and will be continually used for the next three years at the national level.

MADD Nebraska is proud to have our First Lady, Sally Ganem, on the MADD National Board providing leadership and passion about our mission: To stop drunk driving, support victims of this violent crime and prevent underage drinking.
