Emotional Lesson About The Dangers of High Schoolers Drinking

The Scenario on February 26, 2014: Three Clovis East High School teenage boys just finished a big morning test and decided to “relax” with alcohol at their friend Damon’s house during lunch. Alexus, Dylan and Zo realized they had to get back to class to avoid getting “tardies,” and two of them had to take another test. Dylan got behind the wheel. Meanwhile, teacher Stephanie Champion took her daily run at lunch due to a conflict in the evening. Coming back from lunch off-campus were Summer, Sofia and Nate. They watched in horror when Dylan hit Ms. Champion. Dylan didn’t stop. He plowed into the driver’s side of the car sending Summer to the hospital. Zo died at the scene. SkyLife crews are airlifting Champion to emergency. Zo’s actions proved to be fatal and life-shattering.
