Live Well Kosciusko, the Kosciusko Breathe Well Coalition and Warsaw Community Schools is excited to welcome Daniel Ament to WCHS on Friday, January 27th at 2:00 pm. His powerful message will be delivered to a student audience in the PAC and livestreamed to secondary classrooms. 

At age 16, Daniel was the first to receive a double lung transplant from a vaping-related illness. He now has been committed to sharing his story publicly to encourage others. His story has reached TIME, Good Morning America, and soon, Netflix, with his own documentary on the way.

Ament is the President of a non-profit called Fight4Wellness which works toward the goal of "educating people about the dangers of vaping and other substance abuse, to improve overall mental wellness through providing ways to cope with the pressures of being a teenager, and to inspire our youth to live a healthier, happier lifestyle."  For more info on his life and nonprofit visit:

WCS Superintendent Dr. Hoffert stated, “We are thankful for the community sponsorships that have enabled this event to take place.  The dangers of vaping are real and impacting our students.  Our hope is that this message and understanding of the negative effects will help our students make wise life choices.”
