Union Local High School receives award for safety belt usage
On December 15, 2017, Union Local High School was presented with an award for the highest safety belt usage among student drivers and passengers. Troopers from the Saint Clairsville Post completed unannounced surveys at seven Belmont County High Schools. Union Local students had an 86% usage rate and received a billboard, sponsored by United Dairy, adjacent to the high school that announced their accomplishment. McDonald’s also provided “Be Our Guest” cards for a free sandwich to the student drivers and passengers who were wearing safety belts as they entered the school parking lot. During a presentation, Lieutenant James Faunda spoke to the students about the importance of wearing a safety belt and Staff Lieutenant Steven Rine encouraged them to strive for 100% usage.
