Super Bowl LIII This Super Bowl Season, Remember: Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk

As Super Bowl LIII quickly approaches, the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is teaming up with the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service to remind football fans that designated drivers are the best defense against the dangers of drunk driving. The Super Bowl is a festive night in homes and bars across America, but if your night involves alcohol, plan for a sober ride home. We want to remind everyone: Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk.

“The Super Bowl should be a night of fun, so we want our community folks to plan safe rides home if they plan to be out at a party,” said Fallon Foster, County Extension Agent. “Even one drink can impair judgement. You should never put yourself, or others, at risk because you made the choice to drink and drive. For most, even one drink can be one too many.”

Pine Forest Elementary librarian Krista King was named Vidor ISD’s Employee of the Month. She was nominated by first grade teacher Kelli Dial, who says, “Krista has transformed a traditional library into an engaging learning portal for all students. She has gone beyond checking out books in a quiet setting to a totally student-centered experience. Student involvement has grown with her Lunch Bunch reading groups, Summer Reading incentives, and library assistants. Last year she created an engaging lesson on dictionary skills for my first graders after I expressed my frustration with teaching the difficult skill. Her most recent idea brought a piece of school to our students’ homes. Using our PTO Facebook page, students and their families anxiously anticipated which faculty member would read that night’s Christmas book during her ‘12 Days of Christmas.’ These are only a few examples of her effect on our students.
