Domino’s Pizza stores are teaming with the Oldham County Board of Education to encourage students to participate in the schools’ random drug testing programs.

Students that participate in the voluntary drug testing program and test negative will be awarded a coupon for a free medium one-topping pizza, courtesy of Domino’s Pizza.

Currently, Oldham County students who are participating in sports or competitive extracurricular activities are subjected to random drug testing.

The Oldham County Board of Education is expanding the program to include voluntary participation from students who can now sign up, with their parents’ signed permission, to participate in the random drug testing.

“With a great incentive, like free pizza, more and more students are taking drug tests to prove that they are proud to be drug-free,” said Melissa Gerges, program manager. “It is with the support of a grant from the Department of Education and local businesses, like Domino’s Pizza, that this terrific program is even available.”

Participating Domino’s Pizza stores include 604 Crystal Place, La Grange, 222-2202; and 6332 W. Ky. 146, Crestwood, 241-0600.

“Student drug testing in our schools is a powerful tool to aid in the prevention of drug usage in our local community,” said Reggie Garcia, area supervisor at Domino’s Pizza. “As a local business, we try to get involved in the community in ways we feel will make a difference. Giving students who test negative on their drug test a free pizza is just one way we can give back to our local community. I hope other businesses will step up and do the same.”
