JACKSON – The Grim Reaper made visits to Jackson Memorial High School classrooms to show what happens when students drive under the influence of alcohol.
On April 28, the students who “died” – drunk driving, distracted driving – told their stories of how they made the wrong decisions, how they killed their friends, and maybe themselves. How those who died will never see graduation, college, marriage, children. Those who survived have to face the guilt, the families, and a loss of freedom behind bars.
The Grim Reaper program brings to life the often-deadly consequences of drunk or distracted driving to district high schoolers, to give them pause that, indeed, these things can happen to them.
