Ocean Springs High School – Ocean Springs
Ocean Springs High School’s SAVE Chapter started off the school year with weekly announcements about bullying and/or safe driving. Chapter President, Krystal Triplett set up a SAVE page for our chapter on Facebook in January. Speed monitoring was carried out in the parking lot with reminders to for drivers to slow down in the school zone. Students handed out life savers with notes that said “Wear your seatbelt, it’s a lifesaver” at the senior meeting held on March 12, 2013.
The Chapter sponsored a “Hip Hop Teacher” event during the month of March. Students donated money to the Mississippi Gulf Coast Women’s Center for nonviolence. Donations were collected in teachers’ names. The teacher who raised the most money was given the honor of “Hip Hop Teacher” and dressed in an Easter Bunny costume and entertained students during lunch on March 28th.
The SAVE Chapter cosponsored an assembly for all students in grades 9-11 called “ Brain Injury Prevention” on May 16, 2013.
On May 17, 2013, the Honorable Connie Moran, Mayor of Ocean Springs presented a proclamation to the SAVE chapter, declaring May as Teen Safe Driving Month for the City of Ocean Springs. She also kicked off the X the TXT campaign by placing the first thumb print on our poster. Carolyn Boyd is the SAVE Chapter advisor.
