Student celebrations: Men in the Making; No Second Chances; golf win

Representatives from Lake Norman Chrysler Dodge Jeep and Ram were at Bailey Middle School with three Jeep Wranglers to show 17students in the Men In The Making mentorship club key automotive skills. They gathered around the hood of the Jeep to check the oil, locate the spare tire and jack, and check the tire pressure. Afterward, an officer from the Cornelius Police Department demonstrated a safe traffic stop. One of the students posed as an officer as another group sat in the Jeep in order to role play different traffic stop procedures. The students were able to talk with the school resource officer about how and why certain steps are taken during a traffic stop.

SouthLake Christian Academy High School

Mock crash: Students received a lesson in traffic safety from the Huntersville Police Department on April 19. Huntersville Police Department’s Traffic and Safety Section – partnering with the Huntersville Fire Department, the North Mecklenburg Rescue Squad, the Mecklenburg County EMS Agency and Med Center Air – presented a program entitled “No Second Chances” to the students in the high school gym during chapel.

Huntersville Police Department Traffic Safety Officer Ricardo Carter led the program, which focused on the consequences of teen choices, with an emphasis placed on driving and vehicle collisions caused by impaired or distracted driving. The presentation included a staged, two-car crash scene in the upper school parking lot. The Huntersville Police Department, the Huntersville Fire Department, the North Mecklenburg Rescue Squad and the Mecklenburg County EMS Agency simulated a crash scene response and investigation inspired by an actual event that Officer Carter investigated a few years ago.

Four SouthLake Christian Academy students served as actors during the demonstration. Each student had a different role at the crash scene. Kennadee Gallivan played the part of a passenger partially ejected through the windshield. Maddy Abraham was a driver. Riley Ledford was the second driver who was under investigation for DWI. Braeden McCarthy was a passenger who died at the scene.
