WhenSeanSpeaks, a powerful, real-life story about the consequences of riding with a drunk driver, will be presented on November 10 at Trenton High School at 11:15 a.m.  Students will learn about safety behind the wheel of a car.

Sean Carter and his mom, Jenny, have taken their message to tens of thousands of young people to help prevent drunk driving and to make people aware of the consequences of their choices.

WhenSeanSpeaks provides a frank look at the circumstances and choices that Sean made that placed him in a wheelchair, unable to talk or walk. Jenny, Seanís full-time caregiver and traveling companion, shares her story from day one of Seanís crash on March 27, 2005, to the lives they lead now.

Without uttering a word, Sean holds a lively conversation. Using an iPad that speaks the words he types, Sean captures young peoplesí hearts and has immediate rapport with his audience as he shares his story. In a coma for 39 days following the crash, Sean is now well down the path of his new life.
