Students become aware of “Distracted Driving’ at HHS


Students in Career and Tech classes at HHS worked together to promote awareness of “Distracted Driving” all week. These students in Skip Moss’s classes posted signs at all the exits at HHS for the students to see before they left school each day. Members of all the student organizations recorded PSAs for Brownsville Radio and Tomcat Radio and shared information with other students over the intercom each morning. Members of FCCLA produced a video about Distracted Driving with the help of members of SkillsUSA and the Broadcasting class. Students in the HOSA, FBLA and FFA groups also participated during the week full of warnings and facts about driving while distracted. Coordinator for the event was CTE Director Pam Diebold.

In addition, Officer Peeples at HHS joined the effort by placing signs along the school driveway for students to see as they entered and left school each day. On Friday, Officer Peeples and several other officers and local emergency workers produced a video about the dangers of distracted driving.


REMEMBER: Driving while talking on the phone, texting, grooming, eating, playing the radio too loud, reading or doing a number of things can make you distracted. Stay Alive; Pay Attention While You Drive!
