Students were presented with a Resolution by Georgia House of Representative, Brad Raffensperger, District 50 on Thursday, May 17th. This active student group worked to promote awareness around destructive decisions by conducting safe driving activities during the school year and was presented with the 1st place TDS Cup Award, sponsored by State Farm®
This group of over 30 highly motivated student leaders is passionate in educating their peers about the risks they face behind the wheel, creating unique safe driving messages around their school and empowering others to take part in the safety culture. Alanna Magistro, Senior was presented with the distinguished $1000 Teen Advisory Board Scholarship during the event.
Today’s students at Chattahoochee High School are leaving their mark in helping shift the decision making of their peers and tomorrows leaders have been well trained and are all set to take seat in developing new approaches to reduce teen motor vehicle crashes and promote injury prevention.
