Written by Perkins-Tryon High School journalism students Panel impacts P-T students By Alisha Mann Perkins-Tryon High School students and staff were recently given the opportunity to be an audience to what is known as the Victim's Impact Panel. Speak- ers from other towns in Okla- homa came to Perkins in hopes of convincing the students that drinking and riving only leads to trouble, or even worse, death. The speakers shared their tragic loss of loved ones due to drunk drivers. Student responses about al- cohol abuse included the follow- ing: "I think alcohol abuse is a problem in our school, because there are so many young people who don't think about what they are doing, and they often mix alcohol with other drugs and they could easily end up getting hurt." "I believe alcohol abuse is a huge problem. Alcohol is way overused, and I don't think high school students should drink at all. I think the police pulling more students over are a big help." "I don't think that this year is any different than last year, or any other year for that matter, but I do think our students this year are more aware of drink- ing and driving than ever be- fore," quote a high school teacher. Fun doesn't have to be re- lated to alcohol unless, of course, your idea of fun is join- ing your friends for a night in jail, or better yet an eternity in the grave. Students all too often make the poor decision and feel that acceptance and popularity are more important than safety and well being: Now taking entries 5th Annual Cheerleaders ready for next by Greg Johnson Tryouts for the 2001-2002 Perkins-Tryon were held on Friday, March 29.
