Foley High seeks help in winning driver ed grants

Posted

FOLEY, Ala. — Starting Oct. 18, Foley High School is participating in during National Teen Driver Safety Week.

Through Oct. 26, “Celebrate My Drive.” State Farm is awarding $3.25 million in grants to 100 winning high schools. Foley High is in desperate need of new driving simulators for its driver-education class, so the school is trying very hard to get the community’s support to win this campaign.

The awards are as follows:

Two schools will get a grand prize concert by a chart-topping music artist and a $100,000 grant.

Eight schools will get a $100,000 grant.

Ninety schools will get a $25,000 grant.

Local State Farm agent Frances Holk Jones is helping them in this endeavor. Basically, they need the community to go online, choose their favorite school and make a “safe driving commitment” every day during National Teen Driver Safety Week. The school’s with the most commitments will win.

Foley High is conducting a “Safe Driving” campaign by way of morning announcements to remind students to drive safely.
