The Central District Coalition for Roadway Safety and Meramec Regional Planning Commission (MRPC) awarded the Hermann Families in Action with a Project Graduation grant to assist with expenses for the drug and alcohol-free after-graduation celebration for Hermann High School seniors.
Schools in the Meramec Region were eligible to apply for the Project Graduation grant, which included cash, gift cards and educational incentives, valued at $400, that remind students to buckle up and arrive alive.
Seniors and parents, who are planning the all-night event, along with school administrators accepted the incentives on behalf of the 2017-18 senior class. The Hermann Families in Action, which coordinates Project Graduation at Hermann High School, was one of nine Project Graduation grant recipients.
