Last Tuesday morning Tri Star students, on their way to Tri Star classes in Celina, Coldwater and St. Marys, were met with a surprise: a police officer with a ticket! This time, however, it was a good thing, because the ticket they received was for a free doughnut. Students who were found wearing their seat belts or those who rode the bus were rewarded the ticket. Students who didn’t have their seat belt on didn’t get a ticket, but were reminded to buckle-up (it’s an Ohio law).
The event was organized and doughnuts provided by Tri Star Administrators who also helped pass out the tickets. The purpose of the doughnut give-away was to promote safe driving as well as bring awareness to the fact that February is Career Technical Education Month. Thanks goes to police officers Randy Allemeier (St. Marys), Nathan Miller (Celina) and Jacob Little (Coldwater) who helped surprise the students. And thanks to all the students and teachers who drove with their seatbelts on!
