There will be a presentation designed to promote awareness of the dangers of drunk driving on March 9 from 11:00-12:15 in the Glen D. Johnson Student Union, Room 213.

This event will coincide with the pinwheel presentation, a visual representation of the number of people affected by drunk driving in 2016. The event has been strategically planned to occur the week before spring break. Students may be faced with decisions concerning drunk driving. This includes getting into a car with someone who has been drinking.

Blanca Alvarez, a graduate of Southeastern with a Bachelor in Psychology, is the alumna in charge of this event.

She says there has never been a talk about drunk driving on campus. Psi Chi and Alvarez want to host this presentation because it is a topic that is not discussed as much as it should be. Drunk driving has had a major impact on Alvarez’s life.

This presentation is in honor of Southeastern Student, Becca Teafatiller.

Teafatiller was a biology major at Southeastern. Alvarez met Teafatiller in the fall of 2014 when Alvarez transferred here. Alvarez chose to honor Teafatiller by doing this presentation because she was one of her best friends and she was killed by a drunk driver on June 27, 2015. Alvarez wanted to make a difference in the world.

Guest speakers include emergency services and law enforcement as well as an alumna speaker. This event is sponsored by Psi Chi.

Space is limited. Please reserve space for your class to attend, by contacting Jannista Wood at 745-2368.
