Mr. Long Speaks to Alabama Principals

Mr. Long travelled to Prattville yesterday to speak in front of principals from all over the state on creating a positive school climate and culture. It's an honor for Hazel Green High School to be recognized as a leader in this area, and it's a credit to our administration, staff and students! Go Trojans!

HG Students Get Valuable Lesson on Dangers of Drinking and Driving

Deputy Smith, the Madison County Sheriff's Department and the Trojan Ambassadors sponsored the annual DUI Simulation for Prom Week. Students attempted to maneuver a driving course and pass a field sobriety test wearing goggles that simulate the vision of someone three times over the legal limit. You can see from the video that no one needs to get behind the wheel when they've been drinking! Thank you Deputy Smith for providing this excellenet opportunity for our kids to see first-hand how dangerous driving under the influence can be. Please make good choices tonight!
