Your approach to your message – that you were not here today to tell us what to do and what not to do, but instead to give us choices and the ability to apply those choices – made a stronger impact on us compared to any other adult that has spoken to us.

– Emily L., Student

You finally conveyed to the kids in my school why driving safety is so important. You have become my inspiration to work through the tougher times. I know you are the person that I will end up thinking about at least once a day, reminding myself to make the right choice. You are my role model.

– Gianna, Student, New Jersey
