In honor of National Distracted Driving Awareness month, Heavener High School’s National Honor Society put on “Dead Day” on April 17, 2018. Several National Honor Society members participated by representing victims who were killed by distracted or impaired driving and also had makeup put on to make them look as if they were dead. This served as a ghostly reminder of the ultimate consequence of distracted or impaired driving; death. Statistics were announced through the intercom as the school day progressed and posters were hung up accounting the different stories of the victims of distracted and/or impaired driving. “Dead Day” was hopefully a wake-up call and definitely a reminder for many students to put the phone away and to not drink and drive. Something as little as a text message is not worth one’s life.
