And members of the criminal justice club were giving sobriety tests.
“I think it’s really effective, especially when they see the Grim Reaper come in and take the student out and then they come back dead,” Robyn Triesh said.
“I really like the program because you get to teach the school about the alcohol and drugs,” Allie Cook said. “We try to inform them about what they’re doing to themselves when they do drugs and drink alcohol. They [stu
dents] realize it could happen to them and their friends. So it’s really real lifelike.”
But Estes sounded like she wasn’t convinced that the message had registered.
“I’m amazed at the number of students who don’t think they’re doing anything wrong when they drink and then choose to drive,” she said.
“I’m just hoping that if this makes one student make a decision not to get behind the wheel of a car, or not to get in a car with someone who has been drinking, it’s been effective,” Estes said.

INTRODUCING A REVOLUTION IN COOKING
POLARD REFRIGERATED RANGE
By Sean Bowlin
Four times an hour, 24 students at New Braunfels High School learned the chilling truth about drunk driving Friday.
The program, “Every 15 Minutes,” was sponsored by the NBHS, the National Association of Student Councils and Mothers Against Drunk Driving.
‘What we are doing is illustrating to the students that while we’re here in school, approximately 24 people will be killed in drunk driving accidents — and the most unique thing about it is letting them know that a lot of the people killed in the accidents are not necessarily the driver,” said faculty sponsor Julie Estes. “So the responsibility of their drinking and driving is a huge one.”
After a general announcement about the program in the morning, student Jeremy Bartlett, who played the Grim Reaper, visited classrooms throughout the day. One by one, students who a-greed to participate in the program were taken out of class. They had their faces painted white to symbolize death.
Tombstones with their names, birth and death dates were placed in the school’s planter.

planter keeping increasing every 15 minutes, so I hope that’s a visual reminder,” Estes said.
Estes said the students who represented drunk-driving victims agreed to go for the rest of the school day without speaking so that other students could better understand the impact of their loss.
“I think it’s really good, because they are teaching people not to drink and drive, especially on spring break,” said Amanda Van Guilder as
Bartlett took her out of class for the face painting. “That’s what a lot of people do during spring break — they go out and drink and party.
