CMR students want everyone to "rock the belt"

Posted: Dec 22, 2017 6:05 PM Updated:

Students at CMR High School were encouraged on Friday to wear their seatbelt whenever they are in a vehicle.

During a month-long campaign, students passed out bracelets, and on Friday, ribbons.

These bright-colored ribbons are a reminder to rock the belt - every seat, every vehicle, every time.

The campaign has gotten positive reactions from students, and was inspired by a CMR student whose car flipped - but was able to walk away because of her seat belt.

"I think it’s important for the kids to see that it’s not just other students that are concerned about them but that there are adults in the community who really do feel that it’s important for student’s safety to buckle their seat belt. And to see that those emergency responders are real people, a lot of times high school students only see the negatives in emergency responders. And we wanted to give a positive light for our police, our firemen, mercy flight, and the emergency staff. All of the people who have come out to help hand out the ribbons and remind them to save their lives,” said FFA adviser Jodi Koterba.
