2014 Red Ribbon Week
Memorial to the 1,170 People who Died in Texas in 2013 as a Result of Alcohol-related Crashes
CRASH - Thursday, October 30, 2014
Berkner PTA was proud to host this Texas PTA program about the truth and dangers of distracted driving.
Valerie Henisey, Programs VP, introduced the program and Heather Ashwell-Hair, our facilitator from Texas PTA. The video, produced in cooperation by Texas PTA and State Farm Insurance, follows the journeys of real families coping with the impact of poor driving decisions. Two speakers, booked through MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving), spoke. One was a victim of an alcohol-related crash when he was 10. The other was the driver in an alcohol-related crash that resulted in a fatality. Both shared the message that when you drink and drive, the consequences can be extreme and affect many more people than you realize.
