The Peer Educators had a table in the PCC cafeteria the week before Spring Break. The purpose of the group's presence was to promote having a "Safe Spring Break."
Students signed a pledge in which they promised not to drink and drive, not let friends get behind the wheel while impaired, not ride in a car with an impaired driver; not text while driving, wear a seatbelt and watch out for the safety of friends and themselves.
The pledge sheet was signed by almost 50 students, who were also registered for a drawing of a “spring break bucket” of goodies which included t-shirts, sunscreen, cups, lip balm, beach ball, etc.
