Underage drinking forum held at Albany State University

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

 

Albany State University gave warnings about underage drinking to a couple of hundred high school and college age men. 

Many of the young men are athletes or incoming college students.

The University's Center for the African American Male discussed drinking alcohol, and the consequences that bad choices can have on the rest of their lives.

C.A.A.M. Executive Director Antonio Leroy said "It's not a rich or poor message,  It's a right message. When you consume alcohol, it leads to other things.  One, as a young person, it's illegal."

The panel also discussed "no means no" and sexual relationships to help the young men make healthy life choices.
