Students make prom promise NANCY KENNEDY/ Citrus Chronicle

On Tuesday’s Citrus High School Morning Show, news anchors Thomas Godlewski and James Scott welcome guest Deputy Michele Tewell, organizer of the pre-prom “Promise in the Park” photo-op event at Liberty Park in Inverness. This year, 71 Citrus High School students signed the Prom Promise, vowing not to use alcohol or drugs and not text and drive for a safe, sober prom. Tewell came to CHS with prizes for seven students who took the pledge and names were drawn on Tuesday’s morning show. “It started about three years ago when we realized the kids were all at the park taking pictures,” Tewell said. “So, the sheriff’s office, together with Citrus County Street Team and the Anti-Drug Coalition, are there with a DJ and water and photo props for the kids and we give them the opportunity to take the promise.” The students were given a temporary glow-in-the-dark tattoo that said “Promise.” “It’s a reminder,” Tewell said, “but not in your face — and it might just save a kid’s life.”
