Local graduate helps form peer mentorship program for Navy sailors
Navy Airman Trevor J. Hicks, son of Marsha L. and James E. Hicks of Port Huron, Mich., and fellow Sailors aboard the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise formed a Coalition of Sailors Against Destructive Decisions committee. This is a peer-to-peer mentoring program geared toward assisting Sailors in making positive decisions in all areas of their lives. The program has quickly spread throughout the Navy and is now a resource for all Sailors. The purpose of the program is peer mentorship. The goals of its members are to get a group of Sailors who, through networking and discussion, can create ways to inform and inspire others to make better decisions, and to equip all hands with the tools they need to make those decisions. Hicks is a 2008 graduate of Port Huron Northern High School of Port Huron, Mich. and joined the Navy in March 2010.
