The message was clear -- if you drink, don't drive and if you know you are going to drive, don't drink. PHOTO GALLERY

Representatives of the Uvalde EMS, Uvalde Police Department and Rushing Estes Knowles Mortuary all gave presentations on their experinces dealing with the aftermath of tragedies involving drinking and driving.

Uvaldean Martha Reyes also shared the story of the death of her sister Julie who was killed by a drunk driver.

A blood drive was also held in conjunction with this year's safe and sober program. A total of 80  units of blood were donated by SWTJC students, faculty and staff.

Thanks to all who participated in this year's program and blood drive. Have a safe and sober spring break.
