On Wednesday, March 1, 2017 the GRHS PTO hosted the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service Passenger Safety Project's State Farm Distracted Driving Simulator, Virtual Reality Goggles and the Rollover Convincer to teach the dangers of distracted driving and seatbelt safety to the students of GRHS. Many thanks to local State Farm agent intern Thuy Tran and the PTO for helping to bring this program to the school.
Juniors and seniors attended an assembly that addressed the dangers of texting. Jamie and his mother, Katrina Chapman also spoke to the students. Jamie 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. This is a link to the brief video that they played after he spoke to students: https://youtu.be/LzAlv8Tffpo
