The mighty Titans have two words for you— buckle up!
Lake Taylor High School recently nabbed first place in the Get It Together High School Seat Belt Challenge, a program led by Drive Safe Hampton Roads. Lake Taylor students gathered the most educational and activity points for passing on information to their peers about the importance of buckling up.
The Titans led all participating schools with the highest number of educational activities conducted including chalk walks, students dressing like test crash dummies and the grim reaper, fatal vision goggle activities at basketball games, displaying wrecked cars, mock DUI arrests, guest speakers and pledge signing. The school received a plaque and banner along with a check to buy supplies for driver education.
The Get It Together Challenge is in its eleventh year in the Hampton Roads area and has been successful in increasing seat belt use each year. The 2010-2011 challenge included schools and students representing the cities of Chesapeake, Virginia Beach, Portsmouth, Norfolk, Isle of Wight, Hampton, Poquoson, Suffolk, and Newport News.
