CED Mental Health held their 2022 Youth Prevention Conference on Monday morning as students from all across Cherokee County were bused in to hear an inspirational and motivational message from the father of Phillip Lutzenkirchen, one of Auburn University’s all time great Tight Ends.
Mike Lutzenkirchen, Philip’s father, spreads the word through the “43 Key Seconds” Talk, which is his honest and courageous discussion of Philip’s life and the car accident that led to his death.
Inspired by the legacy of Philip, the Lutzie 43 Foundation started the 43 Key Seconds initiative with a goal of creating the first nationally-recognized symbol for distracted and impaired driving. This is accomplished through the 43 Key Seconds key, which serves as a physical reminder for drivers to take 43 seconds to prioritize safety behind the wheel.
