Memorial display remembers those who lost lives on the roads of Lorain County

In Lorain County, 73 people died on the roadways be-
tween 2014 and 2016; with alcohol being the most com-
mon contributing factor. To date, 29 crashes (31 deaths)
occurred in 2017 on Lorain County roadways and 43% of
those crashes involved alcohol.
The Lorain County JVS has teamed up with the Lorain
County Safe Community Coalition and other local agen-
cies to help spread the word about the dangers of driving
impaired, and the importance of safe driving, especially
now during the holiday season. Drunk driving deaths oc-
cur all year round, but the holiday season is a particularly
dangerous time due to a higher number of impaired drivers
on the roadways.
JVS students from the 9th and 10th grade Career Read-
iness and Exploration programs and the Landscape and
Greenhouse Management program, worked together to
create an 8 foot wooden Christmas Tree, decorated with
evergreen swags and red ribbons, symbolizing those who
lost their lives this year on the roads of Lorain County due
to alcohol related car crashes. Jill Petitti, Lorain County
JVS High School Principal and Safe Community Coalition
member, shared how this tree is helping to start the conver-
sation with her students. “The tree came out of an idea of JVS students in the Career Readiness, Career Explorations and Landscape and Greenhouse Management programs stand

Garden-themed Christmas Tree JVS students awarded “Best Overall” at Zero-Proof Mix-Off

Lorain County JVS High School and Adult Career Cen-
ter Phlebotomy students won the best overall award for their
“Blood Shot” drink at the Zero-Proof Mix-Off event. This
event was held at Lorain County Community College and
sponsored by the Safe Community Coalition through the Lo-
rain County General Health District.
Numerous JVS programs and students participated and
volunteered in the annual event, which is centered on fun
without alcohol that also highlights the dangers of drunken
driving. Numerous local organizations created non-alcoholic
drinks that would be great to offer during the holiday season.
Recipe for Blood Shot:
1 (2 liter) Dr. Pepper soda
1 (1 liter) Ginger Ale soda
1 (1 liter) Sparkling grape juice
2 (2 liter) Pure cherry juice
1 jar (13.5 oz) maraschino cherries (undrained)
Mix sodas, cherry juice and sparkling grape juice in a
bowl. Add maraschino cherries and stir.
