The national peer-to-peer safety program for America’s youth started in 2002 and focuses solely on traffic safety.
Boyd is the Students Against Destructive Decisions vice president for Pepperell High School. She is also a member of the Governor’s Commission on Teen Driving and vice chair of the Impaired Driving sub committee. Her work on the subcommittee involves serving as a representative looking at revamping the Alcohol and Drug Awareness Program. On March 17 and 18, she will travel to Atlanta to present legislation directly to Gov. Nathan Deal.
“I am involved to help promote safe driving because too many innocent people die or are life-long affected because other people’s ignorance,” Boyd said. “If our SADD club can get the message to at least one of our teens in the community then who knows, we could save a family’s life.”
