Students Sign "No Texting While Driving" Pledge
Sonny Collins, South Carolina Highway Patrol spokesperson, and Marla Blaker, Injury Prevention Specialist and Coordinator of McLeod Safe Kids in the Pee Dee area, came to visit Trinity-Byrnes Collegiate School on January 25th. They spoke to the high school students about the risk associated with texting while driving. Videos were shown to show a true example of what can occur when using a phone while behind the wheel. At the end of the assembly, students were asked to take a pledge to not text while driving by signing their signature on a banner. The banner will be displayed at the Florence Civic Center.
Marla Blaker is also a 2012 graduate of The Byrnes School.
