Logan's Promise Case Study

Good Essays
I did my Senior Project with Ireland Miller, and together we worked with Logan’s Promise. Logan’s Promise is an organization that spreads awareness of the dangers of drinking and driving. It was formed when a drunk driver was driving the wrong way on University Parkway and hit a car, filled with three Reitz students, head on. Two were badly injured and my brother, Logan Brown, was killed. From that horrific event Logan’s Promise was formed. Together the organization hosts and attends events raising money and distributing merchandise to spread the word about the dangers of drinking and driving. The money raised goes towards a scholarship that goes to one student from all EVSC schools that exhibits good leadership skills and would be a good…show more content…
Together we worked with our mentor Ronetta Stuckey. She is the schedule coordinator and graphic designer for the organization. She works in the Publication building at University of Southern Indiana. We also worked with the head of the entire organization, Charles Brown. From this project I learned how closely connected the Evansville community is.

I feel as though the people we really need to be speaking to are the generations after me.

I took on leadership roles in the events, raised money, distributed merchandise, and attended every single event that the organization had. I also feel strongly about the cause and if I do well on this project then that means that I have touched the reader of this essay and made a difference already. If I do well on this project then that means that I have done what should have been done, made a
