On Jan. 14, Roxboro Community School (RCS) Students Against Destructive Decisions (S.A.D.D.) members will venture to the Person County Courthouse to hear Darryl Reynolds speak about the dangers of talking on a cell phone while driving. Reynolds will discuss the effects of a car accident due to a distracted driver that killed his two sons, ages 11 and 15.

S.A.D.D. Advisor Phyliss Boatwright said, “This discussion will be beneficial to S.A.D.D. members because it offers them a glimpse of the real-life consequences of driving while distracted.”

S.A.D.D. is currently working to put together a school assembly to allow the entire high school student body to hear guest speakers relating their personal experiences with the dangers of texting and driving.
