Crash survivor Sarah Panzau will share her story with South Dearborn students Thursday.

A survivor of a drunk-driving accident will tell her story to South Dearborn High School students on Thursday afternoon.

Sarah Panzau, a two-time member of the National Junior College Athletic Association women’s volleyball All-America team, knew what it was like to be on top of her game –and on top of the world. But, somewhere between life as a competitively driven high school athlete and the early years of college, Panzau began heading down a destructive path.

Aug. 23, 2003, was the day her life would change forever as her car spun out of control. With a blood-alcohol level nearly four times the legal limit, the 21-year-old decided to drive home drunk, missed a highway exit and rolled her car four times.

Panzau is now committed to speaking with students about how her life was forever changed because of the poor decisions she made.

The presentation is sponsored by local Anheuser-Busch wholesaler Craig Distributing Co., Inc.

“A presentation for students about making smart choices, respecting parents and rising above disabilities,” said Craig Distributing Inc., Office Manager Tami Shelton.

East Central High School students attended the presentation from Panzau last school year.
