Oak Forest HS Students Attend Presentation on 'Seven Reasons to Leave the Party'
Oak Forest High School Associate Principal Dan Dunne announced that sophomore students recently participated in a presentation by Judge Diane Shelley of the 5th Judicial Sub Circuit called “Seven Reasons to Leave the Party.” This presentation was brought to students through the Operation Teen Safe Driving campaign of Oak Forest High School, called “Drive Wise Bengals.”
In the presentation, Judge Shelley talked about the seven reasons students would want to leave a party in which drugs or alcohol were present. They were: death, loss of time, no privacy, no trust from parents or friends, no money, no car. She went on to explain the consequences of drinking and drug use of teens at a party. “Even being in the same room or car with drugs or alcohol present, even if it is not yours, could get a teen arrested,” Judge Shelley explained.
At the conclusion of the presentation, Judge Shelley handed out a contract students and parents could sign, vowing not to drink and drive.
