The Sweetwater High School FCCLA chapter hosted an assembly on distracted driving on November 27th. Trooper Biddle with the Department of Public Safety was the presenter. Distracted driving is the number one killer of teens between the ages of 16-18. FCCLA members felt that this was an issue that needed to be addressed. After the assembly, students were asked to take the pledge to not text and drive. Each student that took the pledge received an arm band that read "Texting and Driving... IT CAN WAIT". Alyssa Villanueva, Payton Moore, and Marisa Moncada felt that spreading awareness of distracted driving and the dangers could help reduce the risk in our area. These three FCCLA members are responsible for organizing and hosting this assembly.
