In advance of the Labor Day holiday, Florida Highway Patrol is highlighting the first week of September as Drowsy Driving Prevention Week to make sure motorists are not driving while they’re sleepy. The inspiration behind the week is an eight-year-old girl who lost her life to a drowsy driver in Tallahassee.

When remembering Ronshay Dugans, those who knew her remember her well, including Director of the Boys and Girls Club of the Big Bend Kasey Dennis.
