It started out as a simple evening at Bradley Johnston's apartment last year a night of friends, drinking and having fun.

But the fun came to an end when his car flipped over and rolled into a wash, critically injuring one of the occupants.

That night Johnston received his second DUI.

"Being an only child I didn't have a sister. But being in a sorority I have learned a lot about sisterhood and what it is like having someone you can truly depend on and truly count on," the Sigma Gamma Rho vice president said. [Read article]
