Testimonials

“The Sold Out School Program is heaven sent for school districts. “Sold Out” is a one stop shop of curriculum-based program, filled with knowledge, videos and other materials for our schools…. It really eases my mind to know that my students, staff, and administrators will be taken care of by being provided the knowledge needed to make better and informed decisions about drugs (Fentanyl) and their overall health.”
Montez K. Bishop Sr., MPA

Director of Student Services / Bertie County Public Schools, NC

“Sold Out is a fantastic program, the student video presentation is absolutely engaging. It encourages students
to pursue their dreams and goals, while abstaining from drugs and alcohol ! The fentanyl problem is killing people
every single day. The Sold Out curriculum on Fentanyl is very strong and on point.”

“It has been truly a pleasure to work with Roman Gabriel III’s “Sold Out Youth Foundation” the last 3 years. This organization has attacked the biggest killer of the young people in this country – Fentanyl! Sold Out is educating, not just students, but parents and educators as well. This program works! While a lot of programs go after the supply, Sold Out will eliminate the demand and save our children. We need you all to get involved – join in the fight NOW!”

“I never realized how dangerous drugs could be until Sold Out told us about Fentanyl. I now know that drugs can be a dangerous thing and you shouldn’t trust people telling you to take a random drug that they claim is something helpful because it may as well be Fentanyl.”

No one ever accomplishes something great alone, and what impresses me the most about Roman Gabriel and the Sold Out Youth Foundation is the ability to bring partners together to accomplish the vital mission of educating youth and parents about the dangers of drugs and addiction.

I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Gabriel prior to his Sold Out Alcohol Abstinence presentation for First Flight Middle School, where my daughter is a student. We watched the online program together, and discussed the content, she took the pledge immediately after finishing ! I experienced a real time application of this pledge! About a week later we were on vacation with another family who has decided their daughter may have a drink “here and there. It was not even a temptation for my daughter, having had the opportunity to sign the pledge offered by Sold Out! Such a great unfolding of timely life moments which made for a proud mom and an equally proud student! I highly recommend the Sold Out Program as a regular, integrated part for Dare County Students learning and growing!

Joan Brindley

Parent, First Flight Middle School

I think that this is a great program to keep kids and adults on track. I think it’s a great way to set goals and keep a good mindset. I know from experience how big of an affect it can have on other people. I will definitely do this so I can have a successful future like I plan…

Student, Cheyenne Traditional School - Scottsdale AZ

I support Roman Gabriel “Sold Out Alcohol Abstinence” Program. Roman has visited all of our Middle and High Schools for seven (7) years, he does a wonderful job. The principals share that they appreciate the fact that Mr. Gabriel requires little assistance in preparation and presentation of his program. The teachers and school counselors like the program materials and online resources that they can use throughout the year. They also feel that it is one of the few programs that is all inclusive so that all students can relate to it.  

Aaron L. Fleming Ed. D.

Superintendent Harnett Co Schools, NC

Mr. Gabriel has a website, www.soldouttv.com, which serves as a follow up to his presentations. This website contains information, videos, and discussion opportunities that students can access at any time. We have received numerous feedback from our students that the presentation(s) and the website has enabled them to formulate plans for their academic and social careers. Sold Out is truly a comprehensive program that serves as an invaluable resource as we work together to educate our children.

Robbie Cauley Ed.D.

Director, Pender County, NC Schools

It was awesome to have Roman Gabriel here speaking truth in the lives of our students. To encourage them to be Sold Out in the pursuit of being the best they can be as a athlete, and a student.

Tim Hardy

Athletic Director, Head Football Coach - Greater Atlanta Christian School

Thank you so much for coming to my school. I have learned from experience that I don’t need alcohol to make myself feel better when I’m down. I have learned that to talk to someone is better than having a drink. I love my family and life to much to give it up for one cool night.

Allison

Onslow County High School Student

This program is really important for freshmen to hear, because it teaches students about the dangers that they could be exposed to across the board. Students don’t understand the risk of what they consider fun and entertainment. And when your 14 and 15 years old you’re going to come in contact with alcohol, and drugs. Sold Out teaches them the dangers of their consequences and actions, and the benefits of making right choices.

Keith Woodard

9th Grade Teacher, Wayne County Schools

I would highly recommend the Sold Out program for all sixth grade middle school students.  With 30% of sixth graders across the country who will try drugs or alcohol before the end of this year.  9th grade is a critical point in their life, because it is when they start to make decisions that could change their life. I really appreciate Mr. Gabriel coming here sharing his heart, his passion in showing students examples of individuals who have struggled in life but made decisions to be Sold Out.

9th Grade Teacher

Counseling Rosewood High School

Roman continues to bring a positive message to our students. I believe his message of setting worthwhile goals, and making positive choices is necessary and valuable to Wayne County Students.

David Lewis

Assistant Superintendent, Wayne County Schools

Your redesigned website www.soldouttv.com looks great ! Sold Out… is essential to equip our students with the intellectual and moral tools that will help them make well-informed, and healthy decisions.

Keith Parker

Secondary School Director, Dare County Schools

I did this pledge because I have been going through a lot and suffering in silence for so long. The only way anybody found out is because my class was doing a writing assignment and we had to write how we felt. I just poured it all out on that piece of paper. This program is what I needed so thank you.

Student

Dunn Middle School

Not only do I pledge to be alcohol and drug abstinent as a teenager but also when I am an adult. Alcohol and drugs have been in my family for far too long….

IT’S TIME TO BREAK THE CHAIN!

Skylor

Student, Southwest Onslow HS

I thought Sold Out was helpful because it taught me some ways on how to cope with COVID-19 and other helpful life tips.

Michael

Western Harnett Middle School, NC

We are SO excited to work with Roman Gabriel and Sold Out. I have talked to other counties and they seem to love this program. The follow up is the best part. Kids can continue to have access to resources 24/7 with the website. I also like that the online pledge is more of a “personal commitment” and allows for follow up with the student to encourage and support them along the way. So many programs have an assembly, get kids to pledge and then it’s over and forgotten. This is different.

Debbie L Hodges

Director of Student Support Services, Craven County Schools

I believe Sold Out has a great organization and a tremendous opportunity to change the lives of our next generation of youth.

Jeff Fore

Region Manager, North Carolina West Coca-Cola Bottling

Fantastic presentation. I know Sold Out made a difference in our students lives. Thank you for your passion and dedication. I wish you continued success with your program.
