“There are many individuals and groups who work hard to reduce alcohol abuse in their communities. The issue is much broader than just drinking and driving. There are many other social issues that occur as a result of alcohol abuse, such as domestic violence, sexual abuse, child abuse, and even trips/falls and drownings,” said Lisa Scates, alcohol education coordinator for the Liquor Control Division. Scates added, “These individuals strive to improve the quality of life for our residents, educate people on the effects of abuse, and save lives and we want to honor them.”
