TUSCON, AZ. – AMMEX Global Assurance representatives traveled down to the University of Arizona during UofA’s Fraternity and Sorority Program’s second annual Hunter White Safe Spring Break Program. The March 1 event was held at the Student Union Memorial Center Ballroom.
The event honors the memory of Hunter White, a UA freshman who died in 2001 after a spring break car wreck while vacationing in Mexico with friends. The driver of the car, Mark Sterner travels across the nation to share his story and spoke during the event. In 1994, Sterner was a university student at Rhode Island’s Johnson & Wales University spending spring break with four friends in Florida. The group spent one night drinking alcohol and, instead of designating a sober driver, Sterner opted to drive. He wrecked the vehicle and three of his friends died as a result and Sterner was later charged on three counts of manslaughter and served a prison term.
After the program, AMMEX Global Assurance representatives passed out materials raising the awareness of how important it is to follow all driving laws in Mexico which includes: wearing seatbelts, purchasing mandatory Mexico Auto Insurance, and to not drink and drive.
