The Anthony Conner Saving Lives Foundation was founded in 2010. Anthony Conner lost his life due to a tragic car accident while speeding in Wyandotte County. The Anthony Conner Saving Lives Foundation was founded in his honor to raise awareness for young teens to teach them the importance on making wise decisions. The Foundation is supported by the Boys and Girls Club and Bethany Recreation Center in Kansas City, Kansas, bi-weekly meetings are held every other Saturday at Bethany.
Khadijah Watson, a high school senior, has dedicated her life to preserving the memory of her dear friend Anthony Conner. This remarkable, bright and talented young woman has started a movement to shift teens and young adults in the right direction of healthy decision making. Khadijah and the Washington High School Drama Club is sponsoring the new up and coming play, “Choices I”. The play was written by Jakyta Lawrie, a Teacher at Washington High School. “Choices I”, tells the story of the adversities that young teens face on a day to day basis. Rather it be teen pregnancy, dating, peer pressure or spirituality; “Choices I” reveals the affects and outcomes of healthy versus unhealthy choices. This heart felt drama will not only have you laughing, but also in tears as the story unfolds. Khadijah Watson shares, “it will definitely have you thinking about the choices you make”.
