Dexter High School students participated in a Bite of Reality event. Students were given a profession with a monthly salary and family scenario. They then had to go to each of eight stations. At the stations they had to make choices in regards to what to spend on certain expenses and make sure their budget balanced. After the Bite of Reality program the students took part in a demonstration by Chris Brannon and Sergeant Clark Parrott with the Missouri Highway Patrol. Brannon and Parrot spoke to the students about safe driving and seatbelt safety.
