De Smet high School "Ghost Out" provides a valuable lesson

Wednesday, May 01, 2013


The lesson was meant to be serious April 24 at the De Smet High School gymnasium.


Thirty students, dressed in black robes with their faces   painted white, sat quietly in chairs facing the bleachers as the rest of the student body filed in to attend a special assembly.


The thirty students represented ghosts of people killed in traffic accidents as a result of someone driving while drinking or distracted.


The exercise was called a “ghost out” and was coordinated by DHS student Alyson Hauck as a Family Career and Community Leaders of America  (FCCLA) project.
