Free Class Offered for Young Drivers
September 28, 2021

Walters State will offer free Alive at 25 courses to drivers age 15-25. The class is funded through a grant from State Farm Insurance.
This highly-interactive course prepares students to make safe and legal decisions quickly while driving. The program was developed by the National Safety Council. 
Classes will be offered as follows:
•Newport Center, Oct. 4, 5-9 p.m.
•Online through video conference using Zoom:
  Oct 2, 9 a.m.-1 p.m., and
  Oct. 23, 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
“Alive at 25” teaches the importance of personal responsibility and decision-making skills for drivers ages 15-24,” said Dr. Nicole Cardwell-Hampton, coordinator of youth programs in the college’s Division of Workforce Training.
Students may take this class before or after getting a driver’s license. 
“Drivers between the ages of 15-24 are more likely than anyone else to be killed in a motor vehicle accident. “Alive at 25” focuses on behavior, judgment, decision making and consequences. This class provides tools for making positive choices,” said Cardwell-Hampton.
Classes are taught by Gary Lowe, retired operations manager for the Morristown Police Department. Lowe has 37 years of experience in law enforcement.
Students who complete the class receive a certificate. Some insurance companies offer a discount for completing “Alive at 25.”
