Make Good Choices continues to be one of the Crime Commission’s most effective programs. Conceived and developed by the late Jerry Hoggatt, Commission Past President, as an awareness program to gain the attention of young people while encouraging them to consider the consequences of their choices. Over the years, the Make Good Choices committee has designed and produced a number of important messages which are displayed throughout all schools in Sedgwick County.
The Commission continues to work closely with Wichita Police high school School Resource Officers to sponsor bus trips for selected students to tour Kansas Correctional Facilities at Hutchinson and El Dorado. The cost of transportation for the students is paid from the Make Good Choices budget with their lunches generously provided by QuikTrip Corporation. This exceptional program provides selected students with an opportunity to hear from prison inmates how making bad choices damaged their lives. The Wichita Crime Commission Make Good Choices golf tournament along with contributions received from many members underwrites the cost of the Make Good Choices Program.
