Since 1989, statistics show that a drunk driver kills a person every 15 minutes. On Wednesday, April 21, a HS student will be taken out of class every 15 minutes to represent this loss of life. At 10:00 am, HS students will participate in a staged auto crash in front of Thrall High School. This event will include HS students being transported in an ambulance, a Star Flight helicopter and a hearse. The “drunk driver” will be handcuffed and taken away in a police car. HS students, staff and visitors will then gather in the High School Gym for a mock memorial service with motivating speeches by DWI victims and their parents.
Shattered Dreams is an educational experience that shows the dangers associated with drinking and driving. It reminds us that too many young lives have already been lost and countless others severely impaired because of the tragic consequences of underage drinking combined with driving.
We invite our high school students' families and friends and the Thrall Community to join us for this Shattered Dreams program
Your attendance at this event, along with other community leaders who are our invited guests, will show our students how much the community cares about them, as well as how critical it is to keep drunk drivers off our streets.
(This program is not appropriate for young children.)
Please contact Mr. Travis Dube, THS Principal, with any questions.
