The 2nd Annual Road to Safety Awards Event was a Big Success!
Held at Alpharetta High School on Wednesday night, February 1st the event kicked off with a great performance by the Music Matters Rock U Band, Vitality. This was their first event together as a band and consisted of two 12 years olds and two 11 year olds. Members were Jordan Marchese, 12, Bass Guitar, Dalton Cauley, 12, Drums, JoJo Manzo, 11, lead guitar, and Vocalist, 11, Claire McCoy. Vocalist Claire McCoy followed with a stunning performance of the National Anthem!
The Program continued with statistics on accidents and deaths involving teen drivers presented by Co-Founder, Tim Enloe. The leading cause of death for males between the ages of 16-19 are car related accidents.
Next up a very touching and informative testimonial from Guest Speaker Bo Jackson. The Jackson family, residing in Milton, lost their son Parker in 2006 in a car accident. This years program was dedicated to the Jackson's son, Parker, as well as another City of Milton resident, Patrick Enloe, who also died tragically in a car accident in 2000.
The evening continued with presentations of all 23 videos which were submitted from the 7 participating high schools in North Fulton: Alpharetta, Centennial, Chattahoochee, Johns Creek, Milton, Northview and Roswell High Schools.
The highlight of the evening was a presentation of two Resolutions to the Road To Safety Program by Fulton County Board Of Commissioners and the Georgia State Senate. Fulton County Commissioner, Liz Hausmann was there as the special Guest and read from the Resolution, "Be it Resolved, That the Board of Commissioners of Fulton County salutes and recognizes the important role of the Road To Safety Program in keeping young drivers safe in the community and does hereby proclaim Wednesday, February 1st, 2012, as "Road To Safety Appreciation Day" in Fulton County, Georgia. In addition Senator John Albers also took to the Senate floor earlier that day and also made a Resolution from the Georgia State Senate for the Road to Safety Program. The Resolution summary was read by Legislative Aid, Steven Waugh.
We are so enthusiastic and thankful for the appreciation and support by our Fulton County Commissioners and also our State Senate for this honored recognition. This furthers our resolve to continue with our program year after year in hopes of raising awareness and saving lives! Thank you Fulton County Commissioner Liz Hausmann and Senator John Albers!
The Awards were announced by Special Guest Fulton Commissioner Hausmann. Third place went to students Kailey Monahan and Victoria Panasyuk of Alpharetta High School. Their video was of a girl waiting on her boyfriend to pick her up to go to prom, however, he never shows up because due to her texting him, he crashes his car and never makes it. Congratulations Alpharetta Students for doing a great job!
Second Place winner was Johns Creek High School students, Beck Heigl, Evan McGillivray, and Bryan Washington. Their video was about a student who is late for school and is running through the neighborhoods and streets trying to get to school on time when he is hit by a car. Awesome Job Johns Creek! Incredible Video!
First Place and Grand Prize Winner was also Johns Creek High School students, David Burgh and Christina Schmitt. This video was the aftermath of a crash involving students. The video is very realistic, graphic and intense, showing at the end a Johns Creek police officer finding the driver's phone, and the phone indicates the driver was texting when the crash occurred. This video was amazing!
All three videos did exactly what the competition asked, send a message to your fellow students about the dangers teens face as young and inexperienced drivers. This competition is all about the message, the most important thing. Videos were judged on creativity, originality, and the message. The message was worth double the other two scoring categories.
In order to save lives teens must be constantly reminded on a daily basis, what better way to do this than to get them directly involved in sending the message to their peers directly.
Overall we were so thrilled with all the videos submitted this year. The students worked so hard on them for months and they all deserve credit.
The prizes?? Well 3rd place was $150 scholarship, gift cards to Katy's Carwash, and a free defensive driving course from Johns Creek Driving/Drive Smart Georgia.
2nd place was $250 scholarship, gift card to Cheesecake Factory, and a free defensive driving course from Johns Creek Driving/Drive Smart Georgia.
Grand Prize/1st place was a $500 scholarship, an electric red fender guitar, amp package, guitar stand, guitar case and a free months of guitar lessons from Music Matters in Milton. Also a free defensive driving course from Johns Creek Driving/Drive Smart Georgia.
We had many sponsors and families who contributed to the prizes. Here they are in no particular order: Families: Cauley Family, Enloe Family, Marchese Family, Reeves Family, Shaw Family, Swiacki Family. City Councilman, Joe Longoria.
