Bellevue resident Spencer Lull recently was honored as a Drug-Free Mentor at the 15th anniversary event of the Drug-Free Marshals program in Los Angeles. Drug-Free Marshals (DFM) are marking the year with a new program to inspire older teens and young adults to take on new leadership roles in their communities.

Since 1993 an estimated five million youth and adults in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, England, Australia, South Africa, Taiwan, Japan and New Zealand, have pledged to be Drug-Free Marshals and Ambassadors and to help their family and friends to also be drug-free.

“The Drug-Free Marshals are a fantastic community resource,” said Ann Pearce, director of public affairs for the Church of Scientology of Washington state. “Through the DFM program, thousands of children in Washington state have taken the pledge to be drug-free. The new Drug-Free Mentors program will build and strengthen drug-free activities in an age group that is very much at risk.”

Drug-Free Marshals pledge to be drug-free and to help their family and friends do the same.
