Westmoreland Courthouse Reality Tour Testimonials
Student - The following is an exact copy of what a student who attended a recent Reality Tour in Westmoreland County wrote about her experience:

"This tour was everything I didn’t expect it to be; it was much more.  Before I went to see the tour, I had it set in my mind that this wouldn’t help me realize anything.  But I admit I was wrong and I’m glad because this tour has changed my mind about drug use completely.  I always thought smoking weed wasn’t a big deal but it really is.  It’s one of the starting points that lead to other drug use.  After experiencing this tour I’ve changed my mind about marijuana and I plan on staying clean.  I think this program is very helpful and I think all students in every school should experience this tour.  In school they tell you that doing drugs and drinking is bad for you but you never really get to see the outcome or the reality of it all.  So to me this tour was a really big eye opener and I’m happy I had a chance to experience it.  Anyone who asks me about it, I would highly recommend it because after you see this tour you don’t even know what to say."
Tammy Wolicki – 2008 Principal of Greensburg-Salem School
“In my fifteen years as an educator, I’ve not seen a program as powerful as this.  You will not find a better way to spend an evening with your child that will make such a lasting impression.  I think every middle school student should attend with his/her parents.”
Dr. Gennaro Piraino – Jr. Principal at Baggaley Elementary School
“I continually felt that we were working hard to educate students, but were failing to educate parents. For the 1st time, our partnership with the Reality Tour enables us to begin educating parents and open the dialogue between parent and child.  As a school administrator, I will continue to persuade families to participate.  As a parent, once my children are of age, we will be attending the Tour together.”
