Sponsored by the Clallam County DUI/Traffic Safety Task Force, the 21 students culled by the “Grim Reaper” will be dressed in corpse makeup and robes around a wrecked car at 3 p.m. Wednesday to remind students about the consequences of driving under the influence of alcohol and other drugs, said Patsene Dashiell, spokeswoman for the Sequim School District.
The following day, George Fraser of Seattle will speak at an assembly at 9 a.m. in the high school auditorium.
Fraser’s son was killed in a car crash in August 2000 as a result of his riding with a friend who had been drinking and driving.
Sequim High seniors Amanda Bennett and Mikayla Simonson are student coordinators for the event, assisted by teacher and leadership adviser Jennifer Van De Wege.
