MacArthur student promotes safe teen driving

MacArthur High School Audio/Video Production student Braeden Sandoval attended a meeting with Program Manager Russell Henk of the Texas Transportation Institute on Saturday, Feb. 16. The purpose of the meeting was to collaborate and discuss plans for creating a public service announcement to promote the dangers of distracted teenage drivers. This video will kick-start a new campaign for the Transportation Institute, and will broadcast throughout Texas and the southern region of the United States.

Other participants at the meeting included select students from Communication Arts High School in San Antonio. Students from Comm Arts and MacArthur High School, along with their instructors Heidi Whitus and Matt Saucier, will collaborate on this production from start to finish.

MacArthur Audio/Video Production students have worked closely with the Texas Transportation Institute for several years, and have won several awards for their contributions in bringing about more awareness to this danger.

Instructor Matt Saucier said, "We are honored to be selected to work on such an important project with such great people. What a wonderful opportunity for our students to apply practical application of their knowledge and creativity beyond the walls of our campus”.
