The City of Santa Clarita, Frontier Toyota, Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital, the Santa Clarita Sheriff’s Department and Safe Rides will team up for the annual White Ribbon Week, which is designed to remind teens and graduating seniors about safe driving.
The annual event promotes safe driving among teens and graduating seniors.
The event will take place Monday, May 23 through Thursday, June 2, coinciding with local high school graduation ceremonies.
Santa Clarita’s White Ribbon Week will include a number of programs designed to educate students about the dangers of reckless driving and promote responsible habits behind the wheel. The Santa Clarita Sherriff’s Department will make presentations to senior classes and distribute white ribbons.
Attached to the ribbons will be a card listing the names of seven local teens who have lost their lives in traffic-related incidents since 2011. This year’s White Ribbon Week will be in memory of Sarah Alarid, Albert B. Castro, Dakota Demott, Nicole Lynn Hoffman, Madeline “Mads” Rossiter, Wyatt Anthony Savaikie and Jennifer Stift.
Students are encouraged to attach the ribbons to their gowns during graduation to honor the lives that have been lost and to serve as a reminder to be safe and make smart choices during this celebratory time.
Free white ribbons will be available for residents at Santa Clarita City Hall, Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital and Frontier Toyota. A large white ribbon will also be placed in front of City Hall to show the City’s commitment to White Ribbon Week and the safety of local youth on the road.
