"SHATTERED DREAMS" PROGRAM PUTS FOCUS ON TEEN DRINKING
May 2, 2012
Granbury High School students witnessed a dramatic scene on May 1, 2012, during a Shattered Dreams demonstration that included a mock car crash - following an "accident" caused by underage alcohol use.
Planning and participating in the event were GHS students and staff members as well as local emergency response and law enforcement personnel. Although it was a protrayal, the scene sent a powerful message about the effects of teenage drinking.
"The demonstation gave our entire student body the chance to witness the consequences of a bad decision through a mock crash scene – and not only what happens to the students but also how it impacts their friends and families," commented GHS principal Jeremy Ross.
Participating were Air Evac Lifeteam, CareFlite, Granbury Police Department, Granbury Volunteer Fire Department, Hood County Sheriff's Department, Hood County Substance Abuse Council, Hood County Youth Probation, Lake Granbury Medical Center, Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission, Texas Department of Public Safety, Texas Emergency Medical Services, and Wiley Funeral Home.
Above is a video produced by GHS audio visual students during the mock crash scene. The video was shown during a student assembly on May 2.
