The recent “Teens in the Driver Seat” (TDS) annual safe driving awareness campaign was a success at La Vernia High School.

“We had over 1,000 participants for the five dress-up days, which represented each of the five major risks for teen drivers,” said TDS sponsor Debbie Marsh. The freshman class had the most participants and earned bragging rights, along with the reward of getting out five minutes early for lunch Monday.

The five most common dangers for teen drivers, according to the TDS website, t-driver.com, are driving at night, distractions, speeding, not wearing a seat belt, and driving under the influence of alcohol.

Other clubs and organizations got involved to help promote these dangers. Agri-science students helped by putting up signs around campus parking areas, reminding students to buckle up. Wilson County Pct. 3 Justice of the Peace Jim Burdette arranged for a wrecked vehicle provided by Rick’s Wrecker Service of Floresville to be displayed across from the school.

Students in Jenean Mills’ Video Tech class created two videos, which they entered in the TDS “Driving the Message” video contest. Shawna Oehlke, Daniel Stevenson, and Brandon Smith received honorable mention for their video, “No Rewinds,” and Colby Huth and Hannah Anderson also received an honorable mention for their “Drive Safe Kit” video. Both are on YouTube and can be viewed from a link on the TDS website. Look under “events and contests.”

Digital Interactive Media students created digital posters, taking first and third places and earning two honorable mentions in the “Driving the Message” poster contest. Clinton Mills will receive $1,000 for first place and Nadine Bonewitz will receive $250 for third. Honorable mentions went to Stephanie Gunther and Krystal Davis. Winning entries can be viewed on the TDS website.

Prior to this past week’s activities, TDS volunteers also sponsored activities promoting “Click It or Ticket” as a reminder to always wear a seat belt. TDS is a peer-to-peer safety program for America’s youth.

Glad to see that La Vernia is preaching safe driving to the students. I believe that next year they should do a real senareo like what fhs does and it will drive home the mesage more to the students. Good job La Vernia!
