“Miss USA 2006″ impacts high school students with her recovery story
During her recent visit to San Antonio hosted by Rise Recovery, “Miss USA 2006,” Tara Conner, made a big impact on the high school students and their parents. She was authentic and transparent in her story of recovery. Tara spoke to over a 1,000 students at the following high schools: St. Mary’s Hall, Alamo Heights High School, Boerne High School and Boerne Champion.
Quotes from the community:
“Tara’s visit was a great success. She has a way of reaching out to kids that is amazing. The way they responded to her after her talk at St. Mary’s Hall was something I had to see to believe. One by one they waited to speak with her…many in tears, obviously sharing burdens they were carrying that needed to be lifted.” – Rise Recovery Board Member
“I’m so glad to hear Tara felt like she’d make a difference, and if you can pass on to her that she truly did and that she has made a life-altering impact on our students here, please do.” – Leader at St. Mary’s Hall
