DUI: A Powerful Lesson

Location: Gruber Theater 
PASSPORT! Just three months before graduation, Mark Sterner and four of his fraternity brothers—and best friends—headed to Spring Break. On the final night, they decided the least drunk would drive home. The next morning, three of the men were dead, and Mark lay in the hospital critically injured and facing three felony counts of DUI manslaughter. Instead of being the first in his family to graduate college, Mark ended up the first member of his family to go to prison for his role in the tragic death of his three friends.
