Stow high school seniors to learn about drunk driving on eve of prom night
Nearly 500 seniors at Stow-Munroe Falls High School will learn the dire consequences of drinking and driving on the eve of prom night.

Many questions remain after a 15-year-old Stow-Munroe Falls High School student was found in possession of a large knife on Friday.
