VB School Board Member Featured on WAVY

Carolyn Weems, member of the VB School Board, was featured in a news segment on WAVY on May 3, 2018.  The broadcast highlighted her efforts to educate the public on the opioid crisis.  In memory of her daughter, who she lost following a long struggle with prescription painkillers for athletic injuries, she has founded Caitlin’s HALO, which stands for Helping Addicts and their Loved Ones.  She is working with the city to create a transitional home for women recovering from addiction.  Her efforts also include an education fund and community outreach.  Here is a link to the article and video clip:
