To the Editor:
Recently, students at Carrollton High School experienced a mock crash in which some of their fellow classmates portrayed victims in a drunk driving accident. The mock crash was created in order to show high school students what could occur to everyday teenagers if they drink and drive.
The crash was organized by a group of seniors for a senior project to raise awareness of the dangers of drinking and driving. The event was put on by an amazing group of individuals, including Margaret Mesler, Deluxe Auto Body and Wrecking, EMT Paramedic Service, Carrollton Village Fire Department, Carroll County Sheriff’s Department, Ohio State Highway Patrol and Carrollton Village Council.
On behalf of the members of the senior group and the students at CHS, we would like to thank the volunteers who took the time out of their busy schedules to show students the negative effects of drinking and driving.
In addition, as part of the Prom Promise, over 100 students signed an agreement to not use drugs or alcohol. Each student was represented by a red or white balloon displayed outside the Bell-Herron gym the night of the CHS Prom.
