Trooper Clark spent the afternoon on campus with the PE classes of Coach Tim Martin and Coach Mike Sauls. Students in grades sixth, seventh, and eighth were able to learn about the dangers of distracted driving, being a distraction to the driver, impaired driving, texting and driving, and the importance of always wearing a seatbelt.

A grant from the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety enabled Trooper Clark to come and spend time on campus with teachers and students.

While Trooper Clark was visiting with students, Colquitt Police Chief Hollis Smith and Colquitt Police Department Chief Investigator Rick Morgan also came by for a visit with the middle school students. They reinforced the message that Trooper Clark was delivering to the students. School Resource Officer Melanie Williams was also on hand for part of the presentation. The Miller County School System appreciates the relationship that they have with the Georgia State Patrol, the Colquitt Police Department and the Miller County Sheriff’s Department.
