Safe Sober Prom Night was honored to have the nationally recognized speaker, Jeremy Bates – The Hope Dealer join us on the week of March 9th to speak to select area high schools about unleashing the potential in their own lives.
Growing up in a family defined by addiction and dysfunction, Jeremy knows first-hand the importance of developing resiliency, cultivating dreams, and never losing hope. Living through trauma, drug abuse, and abandonment as a child, Jeremy has an amazing story to share.
His story is shared through live, interactive music, and takes audiences on a journey while challenging them to make healthy choices – including not drinking underage or driving drunk during prom season.
David Daggett and Griff Shuler accompanied Jeremy Bates as he made impactful presentations for the 25th Annual Safe Sober Prom Night program at eight (8) high schools in the Triad last week.
Safe Sober Prom Night is a non-profit organization co-founded in 1991 by attorney David Daggett of Daggett Shuler, Attorneys at Law.
Now in its 25th Anniversary year, Safe Sober Prom Night encourages high school students to be safe with a written pledge to stay drug and alcohol free on prom night. Each student who signs a pledge card receives a t-shirt bearing the winning design.
Students are given incentives to keep their commitment, including scholarships and a chance to win $1,000 for their school. To date, over 400,000 students have signed the Safe Sober “Do it Right!” pledge.
Remember to stay safe, and do it right, don’t drink or use drugs this prom season.
