Posted: June 11, 2019
Heritage High School's Chapter of Students Against Destructive Decisions, or SADD, earned a 2019 Governor's Transportation Safety Award in the Community Impact category. The category recognizes organizations for enhancing diversity and inclusion efforts that impact communities and improve highway safety-related behaviors.
Members of the Heritage SADD Club hosted and provided numerous programs and projects to promote transportation safety. The club promoted seat belt usage; and shared the effects of drinking and driving, distracted driving, how marijuana can impact driving, and other habits that can be harmful.
Earlier this year, the Heritage SADD Club earned a John T. Hanna Award for Traffic Safety in the Category of Pupil Traffic Safety, and the selection committee nominated the organization for the Governor's Award.
The Governor's Transportation Safety Awards recognizes individuals or organizations that have made significant contributions to transportation safety in Virginia. The program is sponsored by the Virginia Board of Transportation Safety.
