Safety Awareness Campaign

As a senior at Marshfield High School, Mindy Korger should be thinking about graduation and her future. Instead she is trying to protect the future of a much younger generation.

Seven months ago Korger's five-year-old cousin Autumn Brandl was severely injured after an air bag snapped her head back in a car crash.

Autumn was riding in the front seat of her father's car when the accident happened, it was something that her father did not realize was so dangerous.

So now Mindy Korger is letting other parents know about the dangers of putting a child in the front seat of a car through her safety campaign. She is getting her message out to the public in brochures, public appearances and by wearing a T-shirt with a picture of Autumn in her halo that she has to wear to keep her head still while her injuries heal.

Korger hopes by people seeing Autumn and knowing that her injuries will affect the rest of her life, they will protect their children by not letting them ride in the front seat of a car.
