Filler speaks to high school students across North America and is popular because of her sense of humor. “She seems to be able to relate to the students,” said Excelsior Springs High School guidance counselor Heather Grove.
She taught Greater Latrobe students that there are choices and alternatives to getting into a car with a drunk driver or sitting in the passenger seat afraid to speak up while the driver is speeding. Cara Filler cares about the lives of students and wants to prevent teenagers from experiencing the pain that resulted from a bad decision that could have been prevented.
Many in the audience cried as they watched Filler’s slide show of the sisters growing up. After the presentation, some lingered to give the speaker a hug and tell her of their own losses.
