ALPHARETTA, Ga. — On Nov. 1, former Pittsburgh Steeler and motivational speaker Tim Lester brought the message of choices in life to third-, fourth- and fifth-grade students at Crabapple Crossing Elementary School. Students listened to him tell the story of his hard work and the choices that helped shape the man he is today. This visit brought a close to the Red Ribbon Week events at the school. The theme of the week was "A Healthy Me is Drug Free." Earlier in the week, students made a pledge to stay drug free by signing footballs, which were displayed in the cafeteria for all to see.
