Rusk High School participated in the "Shattered Dreams" program during the Spring of 2018.
"Shattered Dreams" is an educational experience that shows us the dangers associated with drinking and driving. It reminds us that too many young lives have already been lost and countless others severely impaired because of the tragic consequences of underage drinking combined with driving. The dangers of texting and driving was also addressed with the students.
The "Shattered Dreams" program involves the dramatization of an alcohol-related crash on the high school campus, complete with fire, police and EMS response, emergency room treatment, family notifications, and the arrest and booking of the driver.
