SWOSU Student Government Hosting Drunk Driving and DUI Forum

The SWOSU Student Government Association will host two forums in February, and the first will be on drunk driving and DUIs.

The forum will be held Thursday, February 6, at 6 p.m. in Room 104 of the Gen. Thomas P. Stafford Center on the Weatherford campus. All students are invited to attend.

Student Government Vice President Taylor Kincanon said the forum offers students a great chance to get direct and useful information from law enforcement and legal experts.

The drunk driving and DUI forum will feature a panel of four speakers: District Attorney Dennis Smith, Weatherford Chief of Police Louis Flowers, SWOSU Chief of Public Safety Rick Bolar, and one of Weatherford’s local attorneys. The group will give information relevant to college students from their areas of expertise and discuss topics like what to do if a person is a passenger in the vehicle and how new laws affect DUIs. Students will also have the opportunity to ask questions.

The second forum, scheduled for Thursday, February 27, will feature Mayor Mike Brown discussing happenings and taking questions about the city of Weatherford. More information will be released on Mayor Brown’s forum as the date approaches.
