KETTERING, Ohio — When she was a child, Jesika Shriver-Kelch experienced the loss of dozens of people from her community after they died in a bus crash caused by a drunken driver in 1988.

"I lost a lot of my peers in that crash," Shriver-Kelch said of the bus crash in Carrollton, Ky.
"Twenty-seven people died of 70 on the bus. Twenty four of those who died were kids. That's how I've become a strong supporter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving and that's what jump-started me into becoming a police officer, to keep that from happening to other people, families and friends."
