Cartersville High Gets First Look At New Prom Video

Cartersville High School’s Junior and Senior class got to be the first school to view the NEW underage drinking PSA created in partnership between Bartow EMS and the Coalition to Prevent the Misuse of Alcohol. The video called “Decisions,” focuses on the story of a high school senior who makes several big decisions during the night of his prom that results in real life consequences. The CPMA hopes that students will choose to “Rethink the Drink” and choose to celebrate in a safe and healthy way.

Prom PSA Premier Night!

TONIGHT is the premier of the new prom video “Decisions!” The creation of this video was a joint venture between Bartow County EMS and The Coalition to Prevent the Misuse of Alcohol, and it encourages youth to “Rethink the Drink” and truly think through every decision they make. It will be shown at every prom assembly in Bartow County.

Tonight’s premiere is open to the public, with the exception of students, and will begin at 7 pm at Cartersville High School. Hope to see you there!
