Family Devoted To Student Death-Prevention

High school graduation parties celebrate a life-passage, and they can also create a life's end. Each year, after a graduation ceremony some over-celebratory graduates will die from alcohol poisoning. 

Following the death of a popular Texas college student from alcohol poisoning, Aware Awake Alive formed to "...prevent loss of life to alcohol poisoning by educating teens, young adults and parents on the dangers and symptoms of alcohol overdose, generating awareness and dialogue around amnesty-based policy and legislation and creating an atmosphere of partnership in which young people, parents, educators and like-minded organizations share responsibility for supporting and educating one another."

The website acknowledges, " Julia, Scott and Hayden Starkey have faced the loss of their beloved son and brother with a focus on turning their personal tragedy into something positive for the greater good. The Starkey family believes the loss of Carson has given them a unique gift to serve and help others. Julia and Scott commit themselves fulltime to the mission of Aware Awake Alive."
