According to information provided
by ADFY, the ad which was originally written by ADFY Director
Marya Tyler was completely revamped by the students who liked
the gist of it but weren't too keen on the dreams Tyler had proposed.

Julie Slanaker, the students recorded their own dreams - the
final line..."Drugs destroy dreams."
The students received their
award at Ketchikan High School on October 29th. Copies of the
plaque will hang at KFMJ radio and at the ADFY Prevention Services'
office located in the Westflight Building.
