Drunk driving opponent to visit NZ Nov. 1

Posted

North Zulch ISD students will get a visit from one of the more active anti-drunk driving campaigns when “WhenSeanSpeaks” visits school campuses Nov. 1.

According to a press release, WhenSeanSpeaks is a powerful, real life story about the consequences of riding with a drunk driver, presented by Sean Carter and his mother Jenny. The pair have presented their message to more than 300,000 people.

According to the organization’s web page, Sean’s journey into his new life started at the crash site in Wichita Falls, Texas, during the wee hours of Sunday, March 27, 2005. At the time of his motor vehicle crash, Sean was a student at Midwestern State University majoring in Business Administration. He was the passenger in a truck, driven by a college friend who was drunk. As the truck spun and slammed into a tree, Sean’s journey began.

Sean suffered multiple fractures, internal injuries, but worst of all a traumatic brain injury. Sean is now well down the path of his new life. Although he has forgotten how to walk and talk, Sean continues to make progress.

He suffers no obvious cognitive deficits. Sean has immediate rapport with everyone he meets. People are drawn to Sean’s radiant smile, his quick wit, and his power to communicate. Sean has been a member of the Texas Traumatic Brain Injury Advisory Council (TBIAC). He has been on the Mentorship/Advisory Committee for the Texas EMS Trauma and Acute Care Foundation (TETAF) and represented the Survivors of Trauma.

The program at North Zulch will kick off at 1 p.m.
