Free Event, Guest Speaker, Door Prizes - "Dangers of using cell phones while driving" ..

    The Pen Argyl Area School District Health and Wellness Committee and Reagle Dodge are sponsoring an event with guest speaker, Jacy Good, to educate the Slate Belt community about the dangers of using cell phones while driving.

    The committee invites area residents to attend the FREE presentation on Thursday, May 26 at 7pm in the Wind Gap Middle School Gymnasium, 1620 Teels Road, Pen Argyl. Door prizes, courtesy of local businesses, will be drawn. Audience members will receive TXTNG KILLS thumb bands courtesy of the Pen Argyl High School Alumni Association, and STOP TEXTING magnets from the Lehigh Valley Health Network.

    Jacy Good is a nationally recognized speaker for raising awareness about the dangers of distracted driving. On May 2008, Jacy and her parents were driving home after her graduation from Muhlenberg College in Allentown. It was a route that they had driven countless times during Jacy’s four years there. On this day, however, the Good family was in an accident caused by a distracted driver that resulted in a head on collision with a tractor trailer. Jacy’s parents were killed and Jacy was severely injured. Jacy has also shared her important message on the Oprah Winfrey Show.
