Tell us about how students prepared for this activity? Students research the dangers and risk associated with drowsy driving. How were students involved and impacted? Criminal Justice 1 students organized a “Drowsy Driving Awareness” campaign to raise money in support of the Kyle Kiihnl Memorial Foundation. The Kyle W. Kiihnl Memorial Foundation was established in memory of Kyle, a Houston High School student from Germantown, TN. On May 5, 2002, Kyle lost his life when a young driver fell asleep at the wheel and drifted onto a sidewalk where Kyle and his friend were walking. Throughout the week (Nov. 26- 30) students, staff and faculty learned about the dangers and risk associated with drowsy driving and also learned how important it is to get enough sleep at night. On November 30th, Kathi Wright, Kyle’s aunt, who runs the foundation spoke to Criminal Justice students and Health Science classes. Students, faculty and staff were able to wear their pajamas to school to celebrate the importance of getting 8-10 hours of sleep a night. What were the best components about this activity?
