Worth the Wait ended the 2010-2011 academic year with a drama performance at Mineral Springs Middle School. Medical profes-
sionals as well as high school drama presenters were able to speak to over five thousand middle school students about the message of

For one student in particular this message was exactly what she needed to hear. The day after the drama team performed at her
school she sent an email to Dottie Powers, the director of the Worth the Wait program. Below is a copy of her email:

I have signed up for Worth the wait and sent in my application to you. I just wanted to talk to you separately about a problem I am having. When you
and your team came to my school yesterday you reached out to me and a bunch of my friends. Anyway, my problem is about a boy. We were dating and
he asked me about sex, I didn’t really know what to say so I just laughed. I didn’t want to tell him no right then because I really liked him and I didn’t
want us to break up. Then the next day you came to our school, and I sure am glad you did. We broke up today and looking back now I'm glad I didn't
have sex with him.

Dottie is now accepting applications for medical presenters and for high school students who wish to be on the drama team. Please
contact her at: or by telephone 760-3680 ext. 207.
