The Student Affairs Department, in sponsorship with the ACCCEA, presented speaker and author Brandon Novak to share his personal struggles with heroin addiction. Brandon shared his story of his rise to fame as a skateboard prodigy, discovered by Bucky Lasek and Tony Hawk at the age of 14, to hustling and homelessness as a result of his addiction. Students participated in a Q & A and book signing after the event. Audience members commended Atlantic Cape for bringing such an inspiring and truthful speaker to discuss this serious epidemic affecting so many in the local community.
