Bieker to lead substance abuse councilMarch 27, 2019
From Local Sources
Jenna Bieker has been hired as the new coordinator of the Dubois County Substance Abuse Council.
As coordinator, she will assist the organization in promoting substance-free living and a healthy, safe Dubois County for families to grow in.
Bieker was born and raised in St. Anthony and is a 2014 Forest Park High School graduate. She has hopes that her college education, varied experiences, vibrant personality, dedication to a strong Dubois County community and involvement with council meetings during her high school days will allow her to continue to grow and improve the council’s work.
From the age of 15, Bieker has spent time in community offices learning the ins and outs of the criminal justice system, allowing her a front-row seat to study the specific concerns of the community. She has worked as an intern with the Dubois County Probation Department, Prosecutor’s Office and Purdue Extension office, as well as shadowed in community corrections and the sheriff’s department.
All of this experience, combined with two bachelor’s degrees — in criminal justice and psychology — earned from Indiana University Southeast in a three years, has equipped Bieker to combine her understanding of the community, the psychology behind substance misuse and the criminal justice system many substance abusers encounter in a multi-faceted effort to reduce substance use and improve the community.
The Dubois County Substance Abuse Council will host its monthly public meeting at 11 a.m. April 9 in the back room of Shoney’s in Jasper.
