Driving: Where texting, danger connect
Though services such as YouTube make it easier for teens to broadcast themselves, it’s not every day that a video made by a high-school student receives national attention and acclaim.
However, for New Tech @ Ruston junior Thristan Cecil, that’s exactly what has happened.
Thristan, who is a member of Ruston High School’s successful Future Business Leaders of America club, created a video about the dangers of texting and driving for a state FBLA competition. The video won first place at the state level before going on to win fifth place in the nation.
