Vol State Receives Highway Safety Grant

Submitted on September 28, 2010 at 9:27 AM

Volunteer State Community College has been awarded a $5,000 grant from the Tennessee Department of Transportation, Governor's Highway Safety Office. The funding will be used by Vol State campus police to plan and implement multiple accident prevention projects in Sumner County. The goal is to reduce impaired driving, increase seatbelt use, and to promote highway safety throughout the community. The project will be supported through relationships with the Sumner County Anti-Drug Coalition (SCADC) and Community Anti-Drug Coalitions Across Tennessee (CADCAT). Vol State has worked closely with the organizations for the past two years in the development and implementation of student and community awareness campaigns. CADCAT has been awarded a grant from the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools, to expand the development of campus and community partnerships across the state.
