Save a Life program encourages students to not drink and drive

Posted

ARENAC COUNTY — An anti drinking and driving presentation will be coming to all of Arenac County’s high schools later this week.

Put on by the National Save a Life Tour, the event will include a guest speaker as well as a drunk driving simulator, which will allow students to experience what driving would be like under the influence of alcohol.

Arenac County Deputy Rachel Vallad said tat it is an all-day event. The entire school will be involved during the first hour, and throughout the day, classes will be sent in to experience the drunk driving simulator.

Vallad said that the county put on this program two years ago, and it gets the money to bring it to the schools through donations from area businesses and organizations.

The program will be at Standish-Sterling Central High School on Thursday, and on Friday both Arenac Eastern and Au-Gres Sims high schools will participate in a joint program.
