Thank you to the GRHS PTO and the Texas AgriLife Extension Service Passenger Safety program and local State Farm agent, Thuy, for bringing the teen drive safely program to school on Wednesday, March 1. Seniors will attend a short assembly in the morning and juniors will attend the assembly in the afternoon.
The short presentation will address the dangers of texting and there will also be a State Farm Distracted Driving Simulator as well as their Virtual Reality Goggles available for demonstration during lunch hours (this will be open to all grade levels). They are also arranging to have their Rollover Convincer just outside the cafeteria. It is a small trailer with a cab of a pick up truck that simulates a rollover crash using dummies as drivers and the passenger.
Jamie Chapman is a local teen who often goes out to schools to speak about his experience and the moment that changed his and his family's life forever. You can check out a brief video on his story and share it with your students. https://youtu.be/LzAlv8Tffpo
