BRAZIL, Ind. (AP) — A western Indiana school corporation doesn’t want a young woman to speak to its high schools despite it being ordered as part of her probation.

When 20-year-old Kelsey Reid of Carbon was sentenced on two counts of involuntary manslaughter Wednesday in Clay Superior Court in Brazil, her required community service included presentations to Northview and Clay City high school students on the dangers of speeding.

The Brazil Times reports Clay Community Schools Superintendent Kimberly Tucker wrote Akers on Friday to say it wasn’t in her students’ best interests of to have Reid speak. She says the April 2013 crash that killed two local young people was “too recent in the minds and hearts of many.”

Reid doesn’t have a published telephone listing and she couldn’t be reached for comment.
