Eastern View TSA club launches a ‘No texting while driving’ campaign

Eastern View High School’s own TSA (Technology Students Association) launched a school wide No Text and Drive Campaign, with extreme success. This campaign was co-sponsored by Allstate Insurance, and AT&T cellphone services.

By the end of the week long campaign, more than 450 students had pledged to not text while driving. Leaders of our TSA program include: President- Jeb Carroll, Vice President- Zachary Kaiser, Secretary-Craig Pais, and Treasurer- Catherine Hughes. TSA club is composed of drafting, and graphic design class members.

The TSA knew they had to work on the marketing campaign heavily, employing methods such as posters made by graphic design students and appearances during our morning announcements on EVTV.

The goal of the “No Text and Drive Campaign” is to reduce the numbers of deaths and injuries, due to texts sent during driving. It is, as we all know, against the law to text and drive in the state of Virginia. Driving is a necessity and the bad driving habits of others affect us all. How ironic and beneficial this campaign is, with our very own technology club realizing the harmful effects of technology!

To award and recognize those who signed the pledge to not text and drive, each person received a stretchy thumb ring as a physical reminder of their promise, a bumper sticker, as well as placing their thumb print on a banner.

Our TSA program plans on moving to other high school within the area, especially with the success the program received here at Eastern View.
Targeting young drivers prevents a bad habit from becoming ingrained and keeps our roads safer for all generations.
