  Original Published: 11/20/2013Ontario Schools have a new Substance Abuse Prevention Coordinator, and she chaired her first meeting Wednesday of the program's advisory council. Amy Nagel comes to the school district with a background of working at the Center for Individual and Family Services, Community Action for Capable Youth, and the Shelby Alternative School in substance abuse prevention and treatment. Nagel outlined for the council the many student and community activities held throughout the year to prevent drug and alcohol abuse, including an event next month. It's an alumni basketball game December 29th at 1 pm at the middle school, to promote awareness and raise money for prevention efforts. Nagel says the random drug testing of Ontario middle and high school athletes has found only one student having used marijuana and tobacco this school year, out of 69 tested. She says the testing program, now in its third year, is proving to be a deterrent.  Nagel replaces Veronica Cain, who held the part-time job for 6 1/2 years.  She has become a guidance counselor at Ontario High School.
