Tuesday, Sept. 25, 6 p.m., CLC Ballroom
Like most people, Jacy Good's college graduation day in May 2008 was to be one of the greatest days of her life. Her dreams were shattered just hours after she received her diploma, when a young man caused an accident that took the lives of both Good's parents and left her with a 10% chance of survival. Since the crash, Jacy has devoted her life to raising awareness about the dangers of cell phone use behind the wheel.
