As we come into prom and graduation season, a very timely assembly was held today at Harrison Central High School, teaching them about the dangers of drinking and driving.
But it was different than your run-of-the-mill lecture. The national Save a Life Tour brought their drunk driving simulator for students to try out.
And they learned very quickly, the dangers even just one drink can impair judgment, something that hit home for the law enforcement and educators.
“As a parent, training a 16-year-old to drive right now, it hits home, it hits home especially when I’m put there riding with her. We want every kid to get home safe and to their parent. Not just after prom or before prom, but after school,” said Harrison Central High School principal, Brent Ripley.
Nearly 180 teenagers will attend Harrison Central’s prom this Saturday.
