The Soundcheck Story 

Why "Soundcheck"? A young graduate student who struggled with addiction in high school suggested “Soundcheck” for the name because she felt that better communication and education could have encouraged her to ask for help. She also knew about SPN Founder Will Straughan's background as a musician and that musicians do a sound check so members of the band can hear one another and communicate clearly.

Soundcheck was inspired by students of all ages and experiences who expressed a genuine desire to be healthy, support their peers, learn unbiased facts about alcohol and other drugs, and play more of an active role in their school’s health and prevention initiatives.
