West Clermont High School/Great Oaks student organization wins seat belt safety challenge

West Clermont High School’s Business Professionals of America (BPA) chapter is involved in school and community projects to enhance student’s education and strengthen involvement in community service.  Throughout the year, students are involved in safety campaigns with the National Organization of Youth Safety (NOYS) to increase student awareness of safety and good decision-making.

This year, participation in the Seat Belt Saves Challenge was through a committee comprised of Trinity Meadows, Savannah Kendle, Emily LaGana, and Abbey Marsh.  The students organized data collection before and after school and promoted the seat belt challenge on social media, Schoology, student pledge and an informational segment for students, along with support throughout the community and help from sponsors including Joe Kidd Dodge and Lamar.  “The work paid off!” said BPA advisor Becky Landen.  “Our chapter won the Seat Belt Saves Challenge with $1,500 going to our organization with the highest increase in seat belt usage, an increase of 22%.”West Clermont seatbelt safety committee
