After the loss of her daughter Hannah in 2006 to a motor vehicle crash, Peggy Hackett has committed herself to reducing the number of teen motor vehicle crash fatalities in Arkansas. Since the opening of the Injury Prevention Center in April 2007, Peggy has played an integral role in the message the IPC spreads to teens and their parents. At the 2008 Southwest Christian Academy open house, Peggy expanded her initiative to include Child Passenger Safety. She was the lead organizer for a seat check-up event that distributed 20 seats to families in need. Because of her dedication, 34 children in central Arkansas are now at a reduced risk of injury in case of a crash. Peggy, the Injury Prevention Center thanks you for all of your hard work and continued support.
