On Saturday, May 15th, attorneys David Daggett and Griff Shuler of Daggett Shuler Law appeared on Triad Today to tell the Triad about the exciting changes coming to their annual Safe Sober Prom Night program. Watch the segment:
Seeing the aftermath of drunk driving accidents and helping victims of these awful accidents drove Attorney David Daggett to cofound the Safe Sober Prom Night program to effect change in the Triad. Now in its third decade, Safe Sober Prom Night focuses on raising awareness of the dangers of drug and alcohol use among high school students. The positive peer pressure generated by students who took the pledge to stay sober is a wonderful motivating factor among young people. Historically, Safe Sober Prom Night was a once-yearly event taking place in late spring.
Safe Sober Prom Night’s message of staying drug- and alcohol-free isn’t just applicable during prom season, though. With over 600,000 students reached so far (and counting), David and Griff decided that the natural next step would be to evolve the program to one that would reach more students, year-round. The program is now known as Safe Sober, and will be engaging students throughout their high school career, from freshman orientation to graduations.
This shifted focus expands the reach of the program – not only is the focus on the students, but also the greater Triad community. By instilling a sense of personal responsibility in these young people now, the groundwork is laid for them to grow into friends and neighbors who truly care about the larger health of our area.
One compelling incentive to take the pledge is the t-shirts that students receive once they sign. These shirts are designed by high school students, and one winner is chosen each year to be printed on thousands of the ever-popular shirts. This year’s edition of the shirt will be distributed at multiple graduation events, and the winning student and their design will be announced very soon, so stay tuned to our Facebook and Instagram accounts for the latest news!
Later in the episode, David Daggett also participated in the Roundtable discussion with Ogi Overman and Keith Grandberry. They talked about current news items and political issues. Watch the video:
