        AMERICUS, Ga. (Dec. 10, 2009)--Georgia Southwestern State University (GSW) is continuing its six-year partnership with the Governor's Office of Highway Safety (GOHS) to combat alcohol abuse, including underage drinking and impaired driving.

         Through GOHS, Georgia Southwestern has received a $7,730 grant to carry on its participation in the Georgia Young Adult Program.

       Designed for colleges and universities in the state, the Georgia Young Adult Program focuses on peer education in order to promote and bring awareness to highway safety issues including alcohol education, alcohol abuse prevention, impaired driving, underage drinking, safety belts, speeding, risk reductions and other destructive decisions.

        The long-term goal of the program is to create safer, more-healthy campus environments.

         Georgia Southwestern will use this peer education grant to help educate the students at this university on the detriments of drinking and driving and other components of alcohol misuse. The grant runs from Oct. 1, 2009 through Sept. 30, 2010.
