The Teen Safe Driving and Wellness Expo


The Teen Safe Driving and Wellness Expo was held Friday, April 26 at Robert C. Byrd High School gymnasium, just in time for the school’s prom. The expo utilized exciting ways for students to learn about safe driving and the importance of not being distracted while driving.

Various organizations from the area were present at the expo, such as the Clarksburg Police Department, represented by Officer Ryan Criss, who is also the PRO at RCB.

“Programs such as this provide the opportunity for students to build relationships with other safety responders, while learning about the importance of safe driving”, said Criss.

Having Criss as the PRO for RCB has allowed the CPD to build sustainable relationships with the students and constantly implement the proper rules of the road.

Criss continued, “RCB students are great kids, and this is just a refresher for them about driving distracted, especially during prom”.

Students who visited the CPD table at the expo, they had the opportunity to enter a raffle to win a flat screen TV. The winner of the TV was freshman, Max Quillin,

In addition to the CPD being present, Harrison County EMS was also at the expo with a visual display to show the consequence of distracted driving.

EMT Lieutenant Ronnie Johnson explained, “Our station just shows students that it is not worth it to drive distracted, or the end result could be them laying on a cot”.

While at the expo, RCB students were able to experience a distracted driving simulator and drunk goggles to allow them to understand how difficult driving distracted truly is.

RCB Principal Steve Gibson explained the importance of having programs like the Teen Safe Driving and Wellness Expo at the school. “It’s a great opportunity for the kids to get practical skills and apply the lessons they have learned in the classroom by participating in events such as this”, he said.

Organizations present at the expo were: AAA, Bridgeport Police Department, Clarksburg Police Department, Harrison County Emergency Squad, Harrison-Clarksburg County Health Department, Harrison County Sherriff’s Department, Robert C. Byrd SADD Club, WVU Medicine.
