CHS has been presented a grant that will increase youth safety and promote safe teen driving. The grant was sponsored by the Students Against Violence Everywhere (SAVE) organization and the Allstate Foundation. Programs that promote safe driving will be presented throughout the year including Teen Safe Driving Month in May, prom, and graduation. According to the SAVE website, SAVE is a student driven organization. Students learn about alternatives to violence and practice what they learn through school and community service projects. As they participate in SAVE activities, students learn crime prevention and conflict management skills and the virtues of good citizenship, civility, and nonviolence.

The CHS SAVE club is active in promoting teen safety awareness. Members are planning a Teen Safe Driving rally for our school, regularly host guest speakers, and plan to participate in Wingate University’s “Light the Night” project. The SAVE Club president is sophomore Jessica Weber and the advisor is Mrs. Leah Ross. The club meets every other Monday before school and one evening a month for dinner with a guest. The next dinner is planned for March 1. The next club meeting will be held Monday, February 14, in room D105. Any interested students are welcome!
