Kaily Gilman, Flinthills High School – SAFE Athlete of the Month Presented By Kansas Department Of Transportation

Kaily Gilman of Flinthills was chosen for the KDOT SAFE Profile for September. Gilman has been involved with SAFE since she was a freshman and there were deeply personal reasons why she joined.

“I got involved in SAFE my freshman year because I lost my grandma at a young age due to a drunk driver hitting her and my grandpa while they were riding home on their motorcycle so the thought of a club about driver safety really intrigued me,” Gilman said. “My sophomore year, I got into a car accident myself after sliding on ice on my way to a theatre rehearsal. This event really made me realize how important safe driving is because if I had not been wearing my seat belt I more than likely would not have walked away with the minor injuries that I did.”

Gilman said some of the biggest benefits of joining SAFE is educating the student body on safe driving statistics, as well as facts that can help in dire situations.

“At the end of the day being involved in SAFE is a good way to get involved with others and help others make safer driving and general decisions,” Gilman said.

Gilman is involved in the following at Flinthills: Drama Club President, Cheer Captain, Student Council Secretary, Softball Player, Math Relays, NHS, ITS, Tri-M, Honor Choir, Scholars Bowl, Forensics, TSA, and is the Senior Class Vice President.
