Kingman High Schools to Participate in Nationwide Safe Driving Commitment Contest
October 12, 2014 – Kingman, AZ. Staff and students of local Kingman high schools have committed to keeping teens safe on the road by registering for the State Farm Celebrate My Drive Campaign. They are asking local teens and community members to commit to safe driving once a day, every day from October 15-24 in support of their favorite high school online at www.celebratemydrive.com. Two grand prize winning schools will receive a private concert from The Band Perry. Additionally, the 100 high schools with the most online safe driving commitments will win a grant award of $25,000 or $100,000.
“When State Farm announced Celebrate My Drive, and the grants that were being offered, I immediately jumped at the chance,” said Deana Nelson, local State Farm agent. “I truly believe one, if not all of our high schools could win - and that’s a game changer for our community.”
To help get the word out, the State Farm team will be coordinating with Kingman High School principal, Janelle Victory; Lee Williams principal, Gretchen Dorner; Kingman Academy principal, Jeff Martin; and the Student Activities Council at Mohave Community College. Flyers will be distributed throughout the community to schools and supporting employers, and State Farm employees will be on site at high school events throughout the campaign.
About Celebrate My Drive®:
Celebrate My Drive is a different approach to a leading public health risk. Car crashes are the number one killer of teens, and a teen’s first year on the road is the most dangerous. Using research as a guide, State Farm is approaching teen driver safety, a winnable public health battle, by engaging teens while they learn to drive in a supportive and positive way. It’s a community celebration of safe driving habits emphasizing the benefits of safe choices as teens celebrate the freedom that comes with getting a drivers’ license.

What is a Chamber of Commerce?
First of all - you should know something about the organization for which you are a Member.
Your Chamber is NOT a part of the city, county or state governments; a political party or faction; a civic or social club; a social service or welfare agency. It is a Business Organization made up of dues paying members.
The Chamber of Commerce has the responsibility of the economic well-being of our community to preserve our business system, to promote business growth and development. The Chamber of Commerce is a dynamic living process because its people are working for the betterment of the Kingman area.
It is primarily an organization of business, industry and professional men and women who have joined together to work for the solution of their mutual business and community problem/needs. In Kingman, as in every other area, there is a distinct need for an organized group such as the Chamber of Commerce. There are problems and opportunities which an individual by himself / herself cannot possibly solve; but by working with others, pooling time and resources, important accomplishments can be made.
