Chris Herren, a basketball legend from Fall River, Massachusetts, was an All-American, broke scoring records and was recruited by the nation’s top colleges. Herren realized his lifelong dream of playing in the NBA before losing his career and almost his family to the disease of addiction.
Alcohol and drug-free since August 1, 2008, Chris has spoken to over one million students nationwide with the goal of sparking honest discussions and making a positive difference in their lives. Through inspiring presentations, Herren empowers the audience and guides students to rethink how we look at the disease of addiction, from the last day to the ﬁrst.
On Thursday, March 9, the Binghamton City School District will host Chris Herren to present to East Middle School students at 1:30 p.m., and then have an open community presentation at 6 p.m. in the East Middle School auditorium.
