Today was Grim Reaper Day at Staples.
To raise awareness of the dangers of drunk driving, the Teen Awareness Group (TAG) plastered the halls and lockers with informational signs and graphic posters.
A coffin near the cafeteria hammered home the point that drunk driving kills.
A video — shown to the entire school — was the day’s centerpiece. The TAG- produced documentary featured members of the Staples and Westport communities, sharing personal stories of the impact drunk driving had on their lives.
The effect was powerful. And — in every aspect of the word — sobering.
