DEPUTY’S ANTI-DUI PROM VIDEO AIRS FRIDAY AT MIDDLEBURG HIGH SCHOOL
Each year, as teenagers nationwide excitedly prepare for their proms, local law enforcement agencies, schools and parents struggle with the issue of drunk-driving prevention and how best to get that safety message through to these teens.
One Clay County Sheriff’s Office School Resource Deputy, James Avery, is tackling this subject head-on by joining forces with a talented group of students, Clay Fire/Rescue and a local funeral home. Avery and his team have produced a “movie” based on a story written by Deputy Avery and shot and edited by TV Production students at Middleburg High School.
This anti-DUI prom video will be shown school-wide this Friday. With the MHS principal’s approval, members of the media are invited to attend to cover this event and the students’ reaction to the message. The students who helped create the movie will be available as well to discuss the project and its importance. The prom for MHS students is this Saturday night.
Middleburg High School (intersection of CR 220 and Blanding Blvd.)
Friday, May 7th
