"Vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for people between the ages of 16 and 24."

An exhibit called Gone4ever will be on display in the Skaneateles High School Commons during the school day from Oct. 4 to 8 and during high school open house the night of Oct. 7. Open house begins at 7 p.m.
High School Principal Georgette Hoskins said it is during the annual open house that the majority of parents walk the hallways. She encourages parents to take the time to view the exhibit.
Gone4ever was created with the hope of deterring teenagers from drinking and driving or getting into a vehicle with someone who is drinking or driving recklessly. It is an exhibit that portrays three fatal automobile crashes and the five victims whose promising lives tragically ended because of drunk/reckless driving.
The mission of Gone4ever is to educate high school teenagers and bring awareness to the community on the consequences of drunk/reckless driving, the "forever" effects on the families, their friends, and the finality of the outcome. The exhibit's goal is to save lives.
