A Safe Prom pledge, assembly and presentation promoting teen safe driving took place  on Wednesday, May 14, 2014 in conjunction with the Pike County Youth and Drug Court. Presented was”The Every 15 Minutes Program,”  which is unique in its design and powerful in its impact.  This educational experience reminded us all of the dangers associated with driving while impaired and texting. The crash is staged, the emotions are real. This was a two day event that ended on Thursday, May 15, 2014.

The SAVE Advisor at Biloxi High is Tyrone Varnado.
