Enduring Lesson

Last month, CIS presented Chris Sandy, author of Enduring Regret, a memoir chronicling a fatal crash resulting from his choice to drink and drive and the lasting consequences of the incident, including the death of two people and eight years he spent in the state penitentiary.   Students at Walnut Grove High School were riveted by his testimony and were challenged to compete in an essay contest expressing the lessons they learned from his story.

Lindsey White was awarded a scholarship of $250 for her entry, which offered her reflection on the tragedy and how she hoped all students would learn from the mistake Chris Sandy made.
