It's a sad truth, but with every high school prom there follows an after party. Filmmaker and Sheriff Office Reserve speaker Shane Godfrey gave a heart wrenching speech to the juniors and seniors of Pickens High School -- ahead of their prom this Saturday.
Godfrey explained the dangers of driving under the influence and told the stories of several people who made a bad choice due to alcohol. One bad decision ruined their lives forever. He encourages the students to stay safe this weekend and don't drive under the influence.
Godfrey through his XStream Videos company has been traveling around the state this year presenting similar messages to numerous high schools. His Decisions video has been nominated for an Emmy in the Public Service Announcement category.
Godfrey said he was proud to team with Sheriff Donnie Craig to present the "decisions message" at Pickens High.
