SADD Partnering With Community Businesses to Save Lives
Shore Regional High School District's chapter of SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) is proud to partner with DCH Auto Group and 94.3 "The Point" to help students learn about the dangers of distracted driving. DCH and "The Point" have presented Shore students with the opportunity to sign a banner that emphasizes their stance against "texting and driving." Each student that signs the banner will be presented with a raffle ticket that could potentially net two tickets to Bruno Mars' July 1st performance at the Prudential Center.
Students began signing the banner en masse when they picked up their "Battle of the Classes" t-shirts. "Battle of the Classes," Shore Regional's annual school spirit competition amongst grades 9-12, culminates with an afternoon event rally wherein Ms. Allison Cronk, Student Government Advisor, will select a random ticket and announce the student winner of the concert tickets.
DCH and SADD advisor Jennifer Czajkowski's efforts to help students learn about the dangers of distracted driving will carry on throughout the spring. Monday June 3rd will find Czajkowski welcoming renowned safety advocate Jacy Good at Shore to speak with underclassmen about her personal experiences with the tragic consequences of distracted driving. Ms. Good's presentation will be offered to upperclassmen as well, particular pertinence being present as it will occur during "prom season." The banner from the Battle of the Classes contest will be present within the school throughout the spring months and displayed in the performing arts center during Ms. Good's presentation.
Reflected Czajkowski on the initiative's importance: "All drivers, young drivers especially, can benefit from Jacy Good's powerful message. SADD is very grateful to have the support of such outstanding organizations like the DCH Auto Group and "The Point." Their help is invaluable in reaching our students and helping them realize the importance of safe driving and responsible decision making."
