This week, the Crook County Health Department and SADD - Students Against Destructive Decisions, want to address parents about the harm that impaired driving during prom and graduation night can bring to young adults, their family members, and peers.
According to MADD - Mothers Against Drunk Drivers, “About a quarter of car crashes with teens involve an underage drinking driver.” We all want to see our graduates grow and become great individuals so be aware of the risks and help support safe and healthy habits for your young adults this prom and graduation season.
Additionally, the Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) Crook County High School Chapter will be hosting an “Is It Worth the Risk” campaign called Chain of Life.
With the alarming statistic that 95 percent of the 14 million people who are alcohol-dependent today began drinking before the legal age of 21, the Chain of Life campaign encourages the students of Crook County High School to sign a slip of paper pledging to remain alcohol-free during prom and graduation.
The papers are then linked together to form a chain representing the importance of students watching out for each other and keeping the school community safe and substance-free. The chain will be displayed in the commons / cafeteria at the high school.
