"True Blue" Drug Free Community
Webster County, Kentucky, ASAP and Webster County Schools partnered to write a federal Drug Free Communities Grant in the spring of 2017 and were notified in September they were awarded the $625,000 grant over a five year period. The purpose of the grant is to provide the Webster County youth and community with drug prevention educuational activities and resources. The Webster County True Blue Drug Free Community was officially established in November, 2017. In a formal True Blue Proclamation in December, 2017, County Judge Executive, Steve Henry, with the approval of Fiscal Court, declared the first day of each month to be "True Blue" Day in Webster County. All citizens of Webster County are encouraged to participate in drug prevention education activites not only on the 1st day of the month, but all year long, making a visible statement by wearing blue on the 1st day of the month to signifiy that we are strongly committed to a drug free Webster County.

Community Health Needs Assessment
In an effort to build healthier communities in our region, we need your help in identifying those community health issues that are most important to our citizens. We are working with some of our partners in the Western Kentucky Community Health Partners coalition to conduct a survey to gather data from the public. We need to hear from as many people as we can and we need to reach as broad a spectrum of our population as we can. We would greatly appreciate it if you would take a few minutes to complete our online survey. The survey is available in both English and Spanish.
Participating in this survey is important to the future of our communities, but as an added incentive, anyone who completes the survey can enter into a drawing for a $250 dollar gift card. If you enter the drawing for the gift card, the personal contact information you enter will be used ONLY if you win the drawing and will not be connected in any way to your survey answers.
