Sober Start to Prom Day

For the fourth year in a row, HHS seniors prepared for the prom tonight by attending a morning of presentations that focused on the dangers of impaired or distracted driving.

Local firefighters, emergency service workers, and law enforcement officials worked together with HHS administrators to provide seniors with a full morning or sound advice and clear-eyed visions of what can happen if responsible behavior is ignored.

“Four years ago we had scheduled these activities on another day but were rained out,” said Dr. Galiana, the assistant principal who supervises senior activities. “The only other time we had available was prom morning, so we rescheduled the presentations for then — and the reaction was fantastic, so we kept it.”

The goal of the entire series of presentations is to keep seniors aware of what can go wrong, and encourage the responsible and mature approach to prom activities that our community expects.
