Riverhead High School students learned about the dangers of distracted driving during an assembly on Nov. 21. 

As part of the assembly, the students heard from speaker Karen Torrez. In her message to students, Ms. Torrez spoke about the tragic death of her father in 2006 and encouraged students to make smarter choices when behind the wheel of a car.  

The assembly was sponsored by local Allstate agent Beth Hanlon and the high school’s SADD Club.
