Bishop, committee to hear from students, announce objectives

    Community leaders throughout Midland convene at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 3 at First Presbyterian Church (Rm. 214), 800 W. Texas, to hear from teenagers about the local drug problem and to announce progress and objectives that the group will work toward.    Members of the MISD Superintendent’s Youth Leadership group will make brief presentations regarding the drug situation and committee members are expected to announce that significant focus will be given to advocating for the establishment of drug courts in Midland County, and for relationship-based community service for probationary youth offenders.     The Task Force, formed by The Most Rev. Michael D. Pfeifer of the Catholic Diocese of San Angelo, began meeting in March with hopes of making inroads in the local drug epidemic through the combined effort of community leaders in Midland
