GMHS Students Promote Safe Driving

Posted on October 2, 2014, in Events, Lancer Life, Organizations


General McLane students hosted a Positive Youth Development Conference today, focusing on texting and driving. Other schools in attendance included Girard, Iroquois and Union City.

Students saw the influence of driving while distracted or impaired first hand through a series of activities, including using an impaired/distracted driving simulator, as well as impaired vision goggles.

General McLane High School’s Principal’s Cabinet, a group of students who help create a positive environment among students within the District, are active members in the Positive Youth Development initiative. In fact, General McLane High School was the first school based group to adopt the promotion of the 40 assets. The Cabinet has put on a variety of assemblies since it launched in 2007, including their annual “You Make a Difference” event.

Positive Youth Development of Erie County is a county-wide collaborative initiative that utilizes the 40 Developmental Assets framework created by the SEARCH Institute to make Erie County Pennsylvania the premiere place for youth to grow up great.
