ELIZABETHVILLE – The 10th grade students of Upper Dauphin Area watched the laser and light show, danced and sang along to the music, mixed in there were some statistics about drinking and driving drunk.
Hosted by “Jimbo Stereo” the program really hit home when he presented a video about a young high school student that was involved in a car accident with his friends. One person was killed while the woman’s voice talked about her son, who suffered a triple trauma, brain injury and three crushed vertebrae, lying in a coma for three months.
Eventually, the young man would regain consciousness and recover to graduate from school and college. Many in the audience were happy and then turned into dead silence at the last few words the lady said.
