Newman hosts event promoting safe driving

School going for $100,000 grant

STERLING – Newman Central Catholic High School will host a safe driving education event from 12:45 to 2:45 p.m. Wednesday.

The presentation will include DUI and texting-while-driving simulators, during which students and members of the general public navigate a golf cart through a course while their vision is impaired, similarly to being intoxicated, or while texting.

The presentation is free and open to the public.

In addition to the high school, Mike Sprague State Farm and the Illinois State Police will be involved with the event.

The safe driving event is part of the school’s campaign to be awarded Celebrate My Drive grant from State Farm.

The insurance company will award 10 grants worth $100,000 and 90 grants worth $25,000 to participating schools.

The money will go into the winning schools’ general funds, with 10 percent going for safe driving programs.

Voting will take place at www.Facebook.com/StateFarm from Oct. 21 to Oct. 26, or at Mike Sprague State Farm, 1712 E. 4th St. in Sterling.
