I Promise Not to Drink and Drive

September 26, 2011
Blake McMeans - Speaker

I Promise NOT to Drink & Drive - Motlow students, faculty and staff join Blake McMeans (center) after his presentation at the College and promised not to drive under the influence. McMeans, a top-ranked tennis player with a full scholarship to the University of Tennessee, was severely injured in an alcohol related automobile accident. He asks everyone to make a promise that you care enough about yourself and those that love you that you will never drink and drive. He said, "When I drove away from the bar that night I didn't know I would be throwing my dreams away. Oddly enough, the friends that accepted me with a drink in my hand all disappeared when I was disabled. I hope you never have to look back with regrets."
