Johnson High School’s Smart Driving Club is made up of students who are committed to promoting safe driving habits while breaking the culture of distracted driving. Their message resonates with students, parents, teachers and community members and now it’s spreading across the state. Students in the JHS PTSA Smart Driving Club were selected to present at the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) Governance Camp in Galveston.
Junior Jasmine Hunter was one of the club members who shared their message during a student voice session with board members and superintendents from across Texas.
“Our club is committed to ending the culture of impaired and distracted driving by spreading awareness of its fatal consequences for adults, teens, and children alike,” said Hunter. “We talked about our club's past, present and hopes for the future, as well as encouraging them to install similar actions in their own schools and community.”
Students in the Johnson Smart Driving Club were accompanied by sponsors Melinda Cox and JHS PTSA President Jennifer Easley, principal Gary Comalander, NEISD Board of Trustees President Shannon Grona and Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) Spokesman Deon Cockrell.
