Prevention Spotlight: Columbia State Community College

We are getting ready to recruit for this year’s TN Highway Safety Office Project THSO Project! Based on your feedback, we are started earlier and we have some exciting opportunities for campuses that join us this year. I will be sending out more information next week, but today I wanted to share an example of the THSO Project that was implemented at Columbia State Community College this Fall! Below is a description of their Project and I have attached some screenshots from their presentation. You can reach out to Melissa Febbroriello (mfebbroriello@columbiastate.edu ) with any questions about their project.

Columbia State Community College Project Description: The project was a presentation that was delivered via Zoom and recorded. The student started with a chemical demonstration of alcohol and how it affects your brain- focusing on the cerebellum. Then the campus counselor presented on social norms and campus resources for substance use, and finally there was a demonstration on how to pour proper alcohol sizes. Once a student viewed the presentation, they were mailed a voucher for Chick Filet and a BAC card.
