A local high school student is making sure all her classmates drive safely on prom weekend.
Liesel Zimmerman, a senior at Starpoint High School, organized an "every 15 minutes" program at her school.
Every 15 minutes throughout the school day, a "grim reaper" character removes a student from class to show the rate of drunk driving deaths in this country.
Zimmerman hopes it shows classmates that drunk driving can affect anyone.
