Oroville, Calif.—On Wednesday, parents that have turned the death of their daughter into a mission to keep others safe on the road received a big donation.

Rod and Mary Cassidy were given a $2,255 from the Chico Beta Chapter of Omega Nu sorority.

In 2014, their 19-year-old daughter Brianna was driving on the Skyway near Paradise when a drowsy driver crashed into her head-on, ultimately killing her.

Since then, her parents have created the wings of passion foundation and work to educate local high school students about the dangers of drowsy driving.

They have a goal of having a presentation at all of the schools in Butte County, and this donation will now help make that possible.

"As parents, personally we want to do whatever we can to keep her legacy alive. At the same time, especially with drowsy driving, warn others of the seriousness, stay awake,” said Rod Cassidy, Brianna’s father.

"It's becoming a national epidemic and we have a lot of young people that would benefit from the training this will bring to them,” said Deborah Adema of the Omega Nu sorority.

The Cassidys are also working with the county to have a guadrail set-up at the scene where their daughter was killed.
