Beloit High School junior Kennedy Adams is a very active student-athlete. Last year she joined the SAFE (Seatbelts Are For Everyone) Program, which is designed to helped educate the importance of seatbelt safety to other students. For Adams, being a role model to her peers is important.
“I wanted to get involved in more school activities and thought SAFE would be a great place to start. I like what SAFE stands for and wanted to be a good role model for those younger than me,” said Adams. “I have enjoyed working with my peers to find ways to promote safe driving. The main message we try to convey is the importance of wearing your seatbelt no matter what.”
During the pandemic, the members of SAFE continue to work to keep their fellow students aware of the importance of seatbelt safety.
“Our school has been very lucky, and we are still able to meet as a whole group periodically. We just did a prize giveaway sponsored by SAFE for our students and it was a lot of fun,” said Adams.
While a member of the Spanish Club, Science Club, B Club and History Club, somehow Adams will find the time to participate in cheer and track this spring. Once she graduates from Beloit High School, Adams plans to attend college and major in Elementary Education. She enjoys spending her free time with friends and family.
