SCC Macon sending message of alcohol dangers

September 3, 2013

The Macon Campus of Southwestern Community College is hosting an event Wednesday that could save a life.

The event, part of the national Save a Life Tour, aims to educate students and the community about the reality of driving under the influence of alcohol and is part of the Save a Life Tour and will be from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

This high impact alcohol awareness program brings a shocking approach to Alcohol Awareness with a tragic video, personal stories of the loss of loved ones, according to Fairley Pollock, Student Services Coordinator at SCC.

“Students and community members can experience first-hand the devastating effects of driving under the influence of alcohol. The national Save A Life Tour has been developed to provide state-of-the-art, interactive drunk driving simulation that truly shows how alcohol impairs driving skills. It’s an excellent educational tool—one that we’re looking forward to having on our campus because everyone needs to be aware of the dangers there,” said Pollock.

The program will be held at the Jackson Campus on Thursday.
