In 'Teen Maze,' students navigate consequences of bad choices
w102915 TEEN MAZE 03lighter
Statesboro High School sophomore Austin Seeley, 15, finds himself with three children as the Bulloch Alcohol and Drug Council Teen Maze hosts its final session Thursday. The maze presented students with numerous scenarios to help them understand the consequences of risky behavior.
Tenth graders across Bulloch County recently dealt with some heavy issues: teen pregnancies, drug overdoses, sexually transmitted diseases, drinking parties and jail time. Though they were just simulated experiences, the Bulloch County Alcohol and Drug Council hopes the message was received loud and clear. Statesboro High School was the most recent school to offer the Teen Maze — a unique, interactive learning exercise that allows students to experience realistic situations in a practical, safe environment.
