Responsibility, Decision Making Focus of Class
April 6, 2021

Walters State Community College will offer “Alive at 24,” an interactive driving class, free online to a limited number of young drivers. The class is funded by a grant from State Farm.
“Alive at 25” teaches the importance of personal responsibility and decision-making skills for drivers aged 15-24. Students may also take this class before having a driver’s license.
“Drivers between the ages of 15-24 are more likely than anyone else to be killed in a motor vehicle accident,” said Dr. Nicole Cardwell-Hampton, coordinator of youth programs in the college’s Division of Workforce Training. The division offers a variety of noncredit courses. 
“Alive at 25 focuses on behavior, judgment, decision making and consequences. This class provides tools for making positive choices.”
The class will be offered over the videoconference platform Zoom and taught by Gary Lowe, retired operations manager for the Morristown Police Department. Lowe has 37 years of experience in law enforcement. 
Sessions are 9 a.m.-1 p.m. on April 10, 17 or 24.
