New project CoordinatoR
CCDFA would like to welcome our new project coordinator, Samantha Payne. Samantha is a recent graduate from Northern Kentucky University with her degree in Human Services and Addictions with a focus in Psychology. Samantha is originally from Carlisle, Kentucky and moved to Northern Kentucky in 2018 after her first year at NKU. She stated “It took me a few years to decide what I would like to do after I graduated but after discovering the Human Service and Addictions major, I knew it was the right fit for me. I have always enjoyed helping others and knew I would love a career doing that.” Samantha joined the CCDFA team in the beginning of January. She will be working with our three Federal Grants, CARA (comprehensive addiction and recovery act), STOP act (Sober Truth on Preventing Underage Drinking), and DFC (Drug Free Community Support Program). Samantha is excited to start building community partnerships to provide an alcohol, tobacco and other drug-free environment and culture for Campbell County youth. She stated, “I think my values really align with the CCDFA mission and values. I like that CCDFA creates an environment and promotes a lifestyle free of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs for youth so that they can pursue a safe, healthy, responsible, and productive lifestyle. I think drug prevention is very important especially for youth. I am excited to get to know the community and begin working with and creating new partnerships.”
