C.O.R.E.’s Freshman Impact:
C.O.R.E.’s Freshman Impact: “Caught in the Moment” program was again held in Murdo on April 29. This is the second year that Jones County has hosted the program. Schools participating in this year’s event included; Jones Co., Philip, Lyman Co., Stanley Co. and White River.
The program was split into two parts and the morning half consisted of learning stations. The stations were primarily teen specific, covering many areas that could be a concern in a teen’s life; including a drug presentation, a mental health presentation given by Julie Moore, a station about teen dating and one about cyber-bullying. There was also a seatbelt presentation: Battle of the Belts and a rollover simulator that were outside along with the Fatal Vision Goggle Golf Cart Course and crash response stations.
There was a break for lunch and then guest speaker Cindy Crocker, who lost her husband after he was hit by a drunk driver while he was out jogging, shared her touching story about how drinking and driving can have serious consequences.
There was a skit that helped with the story that set up the mock crash scene. The scene was once again amazing with several area EMTs and fire department volunteers participating. The program even included a rescue helicopter.
