Lights of Hope Ceremony
Please join the Davis Direction Foundation at the Lights of Hope ceremony at Kennesaw Mountain High School’s front lawn on Monday, September 1, 2014 at 9:00 PM. The Lights of Hope is a national ceremony that will begin National Recovery Month for Addiction. Participants will be asked to bring their own candles and a lighter to this brief ceremony: a red candle for someone who has an active addiction, a white candle for someone who is recovering from addiction, a black candle in memory of someone who was an addict, or a green candle for a family affected by addiction. We’ll light candles to remember those loved and lost, celebrate those in recovery, encourage those in active addiction, and support the families along the journey.

Accident Avoidance Workshops
AAW Teen Driving Quiz!
A quick quiz for you:
1~ Do you want to be more comfortable with the idea of sending your student out on to Atlanta roads?
2~ When trying to correct your student while driving, do you get the “I know, I know” or “let me drive” attitude from them?
3~ Does your student have more faith in their driving abilities, or think they know more about driving than you feel is justified?
4~ Does your student show little if any interest in driving or is uncertain, timid, or overly-anxious behind the wheel?
5~ Do you want your student to have more than “driver’s ed” in preparation for Atlanta roads because you feel the “absolute minimum” state requirements aren’t enough?
If you answered “yes” to more of these than you’re comfortable with, we can help with every single one of your above concerns, and then some. The Accident Avoidance Workshops is “driver trainin’ the way it oughta be”.
The Workshops are coming to back to Kennesaw Mt. High School this December and spaces will go quick! Click here for more information and for a complete schedule, or call 770-262-7009. If you are ready to register you may click here.
