Safe And Sober Program Expands

Safe And Sober Program Expands

By Larry Wright. CREATED Jan 10, 2013

It began nine years ago as a way to keep teens from around the Ozarks safe during graduation and prom time.

Since then,  more than 50,000 kids have heard the safe and sober message, with many of them promising to stay sober.

Today,  the program is expanding statewide, thanks to a grant from MoDot.

MoDot is offering education materials to any school in the state that wants them,  free of charge.

We'll find out more during a news conference at Mercy Hospital in Springfield at 10:30 a.m.
