Published

A drunk driving prevention program “Watch UR BAC,” is coming to Montague County, funded by Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service through a grant from the Texas Department of Transportation.

The program teaches that automobiles, alcohol and asphalt don’t mix

“WhenSeanSpeaks,” a powerful, real life story about the consequences of riding with a drunk driver, will be presented at Bowie High School and Nocona High School on Feb. 25. Students at both high schools will learn about safety behind the wheel of a car.

Sean Carter and his mom, Jenny, have taken their message to tens of thousands of young people to help prevent drunk driving and to make people aware of the consequences of their choices.

“WhenSeanSpeaks” provides a frank look at the circumstances and choices that Sean made that placed him in a wheelchair, unable to talk or walk. Jenny, Sean’s full-time caregiver and traveling companion, shares her story from day one of Sean’s crash on March 27, 2005 to the lives they lead now. Read the full story in the mid-week News.
