The Meagan Napier Foundation


On May 11, 2002, a drunk driver killed Renée Napier’s daughter, Meagan, and Meagan’s friend, Lisa.  The driver, Eric Smallridge, was sentenced to 22 years in prison. In the midst of grieving the loss of her daughter, Renée came to forgive Eric, lead a successful campaign to have his sentence changed to 11 years and, in turn, Eric decided to make something positive out of his tragic mistake. In 2004, Renée began her journey giving DUI presentations at a multitude of venues, including high schools, colleges, military bases, churches, prisons and the NFL. In April 2010, Eric was granted permission to join Renée in her speaking campaign.
