        January 09, Elk Valley had a special assembly with Jared Estes, where he shared his story with our Middle and High School students. He came to teach us about how to persevere and don't dwell in self pity. He had shared with us his experience with a drunk driver. One night Jared, his wife, and two friends were coming come from a hockey game and a drunk driver and another man were seeing how fast his mother's Mercedes would go and he hit 150 and hit the vehicle that Jared was in. Jared lost his wife in this incident, everyone else survived with severe burns. Another lesson, don't drink and drive, not only are you affecting yourself but you could be risking another persons life as well.
