Get it Together

Congratulations to the students, faculty, and staff of Hampton High School for your diligence during our Safety Belt Challenge. Your cooperation in sharing the message concerning safety belt awareness is evident and it has been recognized.
AAA Tidewater and the Get It Together committee have presented Hampton High School with the First Place Award for Most Improved Seat Belt Use.
This campaign included 25 high schools throughout the Hampton Roads area. In addition to receiving a banner, plaque and certificate, we also received a check for $500.00. These funds will be used to promote driver safety and celebrate our achievement.
Please remember that seat belts save lives and everyone should buckle up.
