Student Activities Board at LSU Shreveport Welcomes Speaker Mark Sterner
November 02, 2010
The Student Activities Board at LSU Shreveport welcomes speaker Marker Sterner to present, "DUI: A Powerful Lesson," on Thursday, November 11, 2010 at 6 p.m. and again on Friday, November 12, 2010 at 11 a.m. Both presentations are open to the public in the University Center Theater.
Mark Sterner has taught more than two million college and high school students that it only takes a moment to change a friend's life forever. Just months from graduation, he and four fraternity brothers headed to Spring Break. On the final night, they decided the least drunk would drive home. The next morning, three of the men were dead, and Mark lay in the hospital critically injured and facing three counts of DUI manslaughter. Instead of being the first in his family to graduate from college, he would be the first to go to prison.
In his acclaimed keynote, "DUI: A Powerful Lesson," Mark shares the bad decisions that changed his life and ended the lives of his friends. Mark doesn't preach or tell people what to do, but he leaves the students with a real story that forces them to confront their own choices. Mark puts real faces to the tragic consequences of impaired driving by showing the videotape the friends made of their Spring Break, ending just minutes before the crash.
