Prom-goers urged not to drink, drive

WARRENTON, Ga. -- Dozens and dozens of students who attend Warren County High School are looking forward to this Saturday night, because it's a special night.

It's the annual Junior-Senior Prom.

Equally important as making memories to last a lifetime, school officials and law enforcement officers also are reminding students to reframe from drinking alcoholic beverages and getting on roadways to drive.

The latter could have deadly consequences.

"We want to keep all of our students as safe as we can keep them," said Lacey Strait, a teacher at WCHS, who is serving as advisor of this year's junior-senior prom.

"We want to really stress that point with our students."

Ms. Strait and other school officials aren't the only ones who want to emphasize that point.

Law enforcement officials want to send that same message to students, except in a little different way.

That message is simple, yet sobering.

Don't drink and drive.

Students got a look at what could happen to them if they choose to get behind the wheel after they have been drinking or taking drugs during a presentation Tuesday.
