AMERICUS, GA (WALB) -

The Governor's Office of Highway Safety (GOHS) has continued working to prevent young adult driver crashes through Georgia Southwestern State University.

The school received another grant from GOHS worth nearly $11,000 this year, beginning October 1, 2016.

The grant is part of the Georgia Young Adult Program, to fund alcohol awareness programs and an impaired driving prevention simulator for the college students.

Alma Keita, GSW's Counseling Services Director, says the grant has been successful thus far.

"Over the years, the grant has helped us a great deal, because we get our education across to our students, and this happens not just one time, but throughout the year, we are able to do those programs," said Keita.

The grant runs through September 30, 2017.
