Ford safe driving program comes to Elkins High School

Education

Students at one Randolph County high school were learning more about driving safety as prom season approaches.

Elkins High School partnered with Elkins Fordland to bring the Ford Driving Skills for Life program to West Virginia.

It’s a program that aims to educate students about the safest way to operate a vehicle, and how to be sure they’re ok to drive.

“I’m very proud to be able to bring this as a member of the Ford group that I’m in.  And I think it’s important to get things out to the smaller communities that are available to or accessible to other schools in larger areas,” said Jim Jackson with Elkins Fordland.

Students also had a chance to practice their skills in a drunk driving simulator as part of the presentation.
