It’s finally here! The 2012 prom season is here! Our Daggett Shuler team is excited for the 22nd year of our Safe Sober Prom Night Program.
We founded SSPN in 1991. In what we do professionally we all too often see the destruction and tragedy done to children, families and individuals by drinking and driving. We believed that we were in a unique position in our community to address this issue, and so Safe Sober prom Night was born. We really never dreamed it would be so successful for all these years.
We have used a two prong attack. First, we believe that young people need continual reminders of the dangers of drinking and driving. Second, is to help create an environment of positive peer pressure to help encourage our students in the right direction.
The SSPN program has become part of the values and culture at our firm. In fact, when we start going to the high schools starting this week our entire Daggett Shuler will be involved reflecting their high personal levels of commitment . We will personally visit more than 35 high schools and give away more close to 15,000 t-shirts in the triad area.
Over the years, SSPN has won a number of significant awards in additional to local recognition. The program has been awarded the Governor’s Highway Safety Program Public safety award, as well as the American Bar Association Award for Dignity in Lawyer Advertising.
Of course, the most significant award is from the students who now think Safe Sober is “cool” and proudly participate year to year. Encourage our young people to go to virtual pledge that students can take on-line, and of course there are lots of other goodies there too.
Please join our students and our Daggett Shuler Team in make this year the safest prom season ever!
