The Hatboro-Horsham community had an amazing opportunity to hear from Chris Herren, a former NBA player whose steady progression toward addiction to pain killers and heroin nearly ended his life. Chris shared his compelling story in two phenomenal events. An evening community presentation drew an audience of more than 800 people, and concluded with a meaningful question and answer session. The next day Chris addressed all of Hatboro-Horsham’s 2,000 students in grades 8 through 12 at an assembly, which was followed by an opportunity for students to attend “talk back” groups with district and area counselors, which allowed for processing the intense material that was shared.
