St. James High School awarded grant to help pay for Docudrama

ST. JAMES—The Central District Coalition for Roadway Safety and Meramec Regional Planning Commission (MRPC) awarded St. James High School a $700 grant to assist with expenses of a docudrama. Docudramas enable students to have a tangible example and experience of the ramifications of impaired and distracted driving.  

St. James High School Principal Joe Stammers (center) accepted the check presented by Bonnie Prigge, MRPC executive director, and Trent Brooks with the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT). MRPC and MoDOT are members of the Central District Coalition for Roadway Safety presented the check.

MRPC coordinates the Project Graduation/Docudrama merit-grant initiative through a grant from the Central District Coalition for Roadway Safety.
Formed in 1969, MRPC is a voluntary council of governments serving Crawford, Dent, Gasconade, Maries, Osage, Phelps, Pulaski and Washington counties and their respective cities. A professional staff of 25, directed by the MRPC board, offers technical assistance and services, such as grant preparation and administration, housing assistance, transportation planning, environmental planning, ordinance codification, business loans and other services to member communities.
