Corey Eisert-Wlodarczyk

Erie, Pennsylvania

Corey Eisert-Wlodarczyk, 18, of Erie, Pa., a senior at McDowell High School, led an initiative to construct a “hidden in plain sight” trailer, a mobile mock bedroom that helps parents learn what to look for when trying to prevent their kids from taking drugs. Corey, a member of the Lake Erie Youth ROAD Crew drug prevention program, is motivated to help others avoid the pain he experienced after his brother died from a heroin overdose.
