West Clermont High School/Great Oaks Business Professionals of America (BPA) chapter won the Seat Belt Saves Challenge for helping to save lives during the 2020-21 school year.
The students’ participation in the Seat Belt Saves Challenge organized by the National Organization of Youth Safety (NOYS) led to the $1500 prize, which was given for the highest increase in seat belt usage among students.
The West Clermont/Great Oaks committee was comprised of juniors and seniors in the Business Management Finance program and BPA members including Zak Franz, Nathan Cox, Lucas Kamphaus, Alex Koch, Michelle Malan, Diego Saavedra, Quin Bose, Lindsey Carter, and Alexis Cappurro. They organized data collection on seat belt usage before and after school and promoted the seat belt challenge by creating videos and activities for students while completing social media public service announcements.
The Business Management Finance program is offered by Great Oaks Career Campuses in partnership with West Clermont High School.
The 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 awareness of safety and decisions made throughout their lives.
