Vanden High School senior Maddy Denajer began driving a few months ago.
She’s been a member of the school’s Friday Night Live chapter since her freshmen year. The program builds partnerships for positive and healthy youth development with a focus on alcohol, tobacco, traffic safety, gambling and drugs.
Denajer joined other Vanden students Monday for Impact Teen Drivers, a program that emphasizes the dangers of reckless and distracted driving.
“When I started behind the wheel, I thought, ‘this isn’t as easy as I thought,’ ” Denajer said.
