Assignment Fox Cities

Monday, Oct, 13 2014

     Several thousand Fox Valley area high school students attended a
PARTY recently at the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center in Appleton.
There was no music nor food, only wholesome advice on how to
avoid impaired driving.
     PARTY is an acronym for Prevent Alcohol and Risk-Related Trauma
In Youth, a program sponsored by Theda Clark Medical Center
Foundation.
     One of the presenters was PaKou Xiong of Appleton, convicted of
homicide by negligent use of a motor vehicle.   The charge was
leveled after Xiong struck and killed a bicyclist while texting and driving.
     In a voice cracking with emotion, Xiong urges her young audience
to avoid similar behavior.

and Assignment Fox Cities.
