Alcohol Awareness Program at Moravian College

Aaron Cooksey will present "Make the Next Best Choice"

Bethlehem, Pa. March 14, 2012--Alcohol awareness speaker Aaron Cooksey will present "Make the Next Best Choice" during his visit to Moravian College on Thursday, March 15 at 8:00 p.m. in Johnston Hall. The talk is sponsored by the Moravian College Athletic Department and admission is free of charge. Cooksey is an NCAA approved speaker and part of their Educational Affairs Grant Program.

Graduating from Walsh University in 2007 with a degree in corporate communications, Aaron Cooksey has spent 6 years bringing alcohol awareness to hundreds of schools and organizations. His story began while playing football and baseball in college. An ACL tear led him to a series of poor decisions leading to July 29th 2001. A path of destruction led to the death of his best friend. Aside from 4 years in prison and his driver's license taken away for life, Aaron realized the nightmare had affected hundreds, and now thousands of people. He relives the details of that tragic day in efforts to save just one! He works closely with many organizations in trying to educate kids on the dangers of drinking and driving. He hit rock bottom and now must work ten times harder to climb back up. His message has been absorbed, and the number of lives being saved is growing.
