The Brandon Sorrell Scholarship Foundation, formed in memory of the teen, who died in November 2011 when his car struck two pedestrians, promotes awareness to both pedestrians and motorists about the dangers of the roadway after dark.

Brandon's mother, Christol Mastic, speaks to students in local schools about the importance of wearing brightly colored clothing when out at dusk or nighttime. She has distributed 190 safety T-shirts so far and plans to give out reflective belts, too.

To set up a presentation, email her at
