What is the difference between Peer Ed and Peer Resource?

August Ackley , Staff Writer

Peer Ed Theater is a show put on annually, directed by school counselor Kaern Kreyling and drama teacher Frances Evens. It is during the first week of the winter term. The show is made up of around 10 to 15 sophomores, and some juniors and seniors. The students spend the fall term writing and listening to each other, and finish with lots of original stories, skits, songs and monologues from their life.

Often, there is confusion about the difference between Peer Resource and the Peer Ed Show. Peer Resource is an Urban leadership group that promotes mental health and mental health awareness in the school community. The group helps put on the show every year, as everyone in the group participated in the show themselves in earlier years. Peer Resource also hosts forums, panels, and activities; such as the annual Cupid’s Cookout.

This year, the Peer Ed Show was called “Uproar”, and ran from December 2-4. If you missed the show this year, be sure to stay tuned for information about the show next November.
