Our Driver’s Education program invited Blake McMeans to speak to the 8th through twelfth grades. Blake was once ranked as a top 5 tennis player in the world and received a fill scholarship to player tennis for the University of Tennessee. But that all changed when he made the choice to drink and drive. After a horrible accident that left Blake in a coma for 3 1/2 months and paralyzed he decided to rebuild his life and talk to young students about making decisions that could change you and your families future forever. Our students were brought to tears and we thank Blake for his commitment to help others make smart decisions.
