Prom night is supposed to be all about music and fun. But all too often, it includes tragedy if students drink and drive. In Screven County, students will have extra incentive to stay sober this prom season.
Members of the Peace Officers Association of Georgia and Miller Brewing Company donated $1,900 to the prom committee. Students will use the money to reduce alcohol use through education and promotion of prom events that don't include drinking.
"We're trying to deliver a message that we are concerned and we don't want to put them in jail and want them to enjoy one of the best nights of their lives," said Capt. Gary Hill of the Peace Officers Association.
The group will also make donations in Tattnall, Liberty, Glynn and Peach Counties.
