Project Graduation provides graduating seniors from Calvert, Huntingtown, Northern and Patuxent High Schools an opportunity to celebrate graduation in a safe environment with their classmates and guests. The event reduces the chance of crashes involving our youth on one of the most important nights of their lives – graduation.   In 31 years, Calvert County has not lost a graduating senior due to a drunk or drugged driving crash on graduation night.   To find out more about Project Graduation, contact the CAASA Office at 410-535-3733 or visit our website at  www.co.cal.md.us/CAASA.
