Consequences of drinking and driving to be discussed

February 5, 2009 | Events, UToday
By Shannon Wermer

Mark Sterner made a decision while on spring break that affected many lives. He’ll talk about that decision in a presentation, “DUI: A Powerful Lesson,” Monday, Feb. 9, at 8:30 p.m. in Savage Arena on Main Campus.



Sterner will share the bad decisions that changed his life — and killed three of his fraternity brothers. He was left in the hospital critically injured and faced felony counts of manslaughter. Sterner will show a video he and his friends made of their spring break; it ends minutes before the crash — and puts real faces to the tragic consequences of impaired driving.

He has been a keynote speaker for the Northeastern Greek Leadership Association, Western Regional Greek Leadership Association and the Mid-American Collegiate Health Association.

This presentation is mandatory for all UT student-athletes and most Greek organizations. Anyone interested is invited to attend.

Sterner’s presentation is funded by an NCAA Choices Grant and the UT Greek Life Council.
