Citizens Who Care has produced a video featuring a recent EGHS grad, the police chief and a former state police officer, all discussing why it's important to make good choices.
The East Greenwich High School prom takes place tomorrow night at the Crown Plaza, but it's what happens before and, particularly, after the prom that a new video is focusing on. Citizens Who Care recently put together a video featuring EGHS alum Ethan Zink, EG Police Chief Tom Coyle, and retired State Police Lt. Kevin Hopkins – all of them talk about the importance of making the right decision in circumstances where it can be tempting to do otherwise. The video is posted here. Check it out! And be safe.
