Celebrate My Drive, powered by State Farm®, is pleased to announce Blackman High School is one of 100 winning high schools, earning a $25,000 grant. It was among 3,283 registered high schools that participated in this year's program. Students, parents, administrators and the entire community rallied in support of teen drivers, making online safe driving commitments, helping the Blaze reach its goal. The school received its grant during halftime of a recent boys' basketball game.
Crashes are the leading cause of death for teens, and the first year behind the wheel is the most dangerous. Celebrate My Drive is an opportunity to celebrate new drivers, focusing on the freedom, but also the responsibility, that comes with earning a driver's license. It's a chance for teens and their high schools to amplify conversations about this important topic and help be part of the solution.
"State Farm is proud of Blackman's efforts to generate excitement among students, faculty and the entire community to make safe driving commitments and have positive conversations about teen driver safety," said Bud Morris, State Farm agent.. "We appreciate all of the wonderful support of the program to help reduce teen crashes and save lives."
