NYS Governor’s Youth Council Information and Application


The Ballston Spa High School hosted the Sheriff’s Teen Council on May 2, 2019 in the High School library. The Council meets on a monthly basis to discuss current health and safety topics. The students heard from Sheriff Zurlo, Captain Dan Morley, Saratoga County STOP DWI Coordinator Wes Carr, and Sarah Leidel on the dangers of intoxicated and impaired driving, and illicit drug use. Sarah’s daughter Kari Leidel was a student at Ballston Spa High School when she was killed by a drunk driver in 2012.

In attendance were students from Ballston Spa and Galway High Schools, with students from Burnt Hills – Ballston Lake and Corinth High Schools in attendance via video conference.

The Sheriff’s Office would like to once again thank Sarah Leidel for her tireless, selfless dedication to stopping intoxicated and impaired driving by sharing her daughter’s story. No parent should ever have to endure the pain and suffering she experienced and her efforts to keep our students safe are nothing short of remarkable.
