Students at Monett Middle School on Oct. 16 heard 14 speakers present information of a wide range of topics beyond the classroom, including self-esteem, leadership, online safety and inclusion during MMS Awareness Day. Sgt. John Lueckenhoff with the public information division of the Missouri State Highway Patrol, showed videos on driving hazards and offered students a ride in the Seat Belt Convincer, which simulated a 5 mile per hour stop, letting students feel the belt hold them and get a sense of what it would be like without a belt.
