Notre Dame H.S. to receive $2,500 grant for support of 'Celebrate My Drive' | News
CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - Notre Dame High School is being honored as one of 452 schools across the U.S. and Canada that were key supporters of the Celebrate My Drive initiative in September.
State Farm will present Notre Dame High School with their $2,500 grant at Notre Dame on Dec. 14 at 11:30 a.m.
Across North America on Sept. 15, high school officials, safety advocates, local law enforcement and government leaders joined with more than 1,400 State Farm agents and tens of thousands of teens and their parents for a celebration of this year’s class of new teen drivers. State Farm is taking a different approach to teen driving safety by sharing positive driving habits and experiences rather than some of the more traditional approaches that often scare new drivers.
“We are thankful to Notre Dame High School and everyone who came together in September to help rally communities around new drivers,” said Agent Craig Heisserer. “Sharing these positive experiences and helping to keep them safe as they explore the road ahead builds stronger communities.”
The company celebrated new drivers at more than 400 Celebrate My Drive events organized in communities large and small – making it North America’s largest-ever simultaneous gathering of new teen drivers.
