A number of Southern Ute Indian Montessori Academy students were recognized by the Southern Ute Police Department by completing the Protecting You & Me Graduation, a program developed by Mothers Against Drunk Drivers that covers various safety procedures and decision-making skills. Approximately 36 participating students graduated from the program on Tuesday, Dec. 13 after spending 8 weeks in classes that centered on the dangers of underage drinking and peer pressure resistance. Other additional classes included helmet safety, bike safety, and road safety. SUIMA has been doing the program for 5 years.
