The Wayne County High School Freshmen Academy got to participate in a mock real life lesson regarding bad choices and the results. The annual event held on October 7th began at the National Guard Armory and concluded at Memorial Park with a dramatic mock accident scene. Many local volunteers worked the event to make an impression on the freshmen and hopefully keep them all safe in the future. Special thanks to Extension Agent Jody Paver and the entire cast of volunteers and professionals who orchestrated the huge event.
