Program urges better choices from students
Placeholder Image
On Oct. 1, Monroe Clinic and Monroe High School partnered together on a special program for area high school students. The 75-minute presentation at the Monroe High School Performing Arts Center dramatized the tragic results of combining driving with alcohol, inattentive driving, texting and cell phone use - especially when not wearing a seatbelt. The program was made possible through the generous donors to the Monroe Clinic and Hospital Foundation.The theatrical performance portrayed the story of three fictional students involved in a car crash - an intoxicated driver, a passenger whose injuries resulted in lifelong physical and mental challenges, and a passenger who was killed when he was thrown from the car.
