Action Taken by the Safety Committee resulting from reported concerns

get the word out about safe winter driving (November 2014):

Administration tasked the committee with getting the word out about safe winter driving.

action taken by the safety committee:

The Safety Committee enlisted the help of Diane Driskill and Andy Tuschhoff’s five graphic art students to create their own design/poster to promote safe winter driving. Phil Liggins from the “skid shop” provided guidance to the students before they began their first drafts.  To determine which poster would be displayed on campus to encourage safe driving, the posters where printed on foam board and hung in the SUB in the hallway next to the cafeteria.  We asked the students and other occupants of the SUB to vote on the most effective poster.  After two weeks of open voting, Katie Chaffin’s poster entitled "drive slow in the snow” won the most votes.  Katie’s poster was put up in each building on campus to encourage safe driving through the winter months to help save lives and deter injuries. The posters were delivered  to Clarkston High School so that they could also utilize the safe driving campaign posters and vote for their favorite.  After a few weeks the posters will travel to Lewiston High School for display and voting there. Administration has agreed to pay for a few posters for each high school after the students vote for their favorite poster. The Graphic Arts department is looking forward to assisting the Safety Committee in the future with this project and we hope this will be the beginning of an annual safe driving campaign.
