Senior Grace Triola has a knack for driving that recently earned her $300. On April 30, she showcased her students showcased their safety and knowledge in driving during the Crawford County Driver Skills Challenge.  

Several schools in the area tested their students before the competition to create teams of three intelligent drivers.  The SHS team consisted of seniors Eli Draa, Emmitt Hershelman, and Grace Triola.

Each of the 21 total students participated in four different tests including written, perception, driving, and safety versions.  

Despite Emmitt Hershelman placing first in the preliminary team-forming tests, Grace Triola finished third among the field of contenders, earning herself a $300 reward which she plans to put toward college.  

As this was her first experience in the competition, Triola anticipated less written testing and more skill evaluation.  “I expected the challenge to be more driving based,” she said.

Students observed fabricated situations in which distractions in the form of texting and drinking impaired the ability to drive.  Of the event as a whole Triola said, “It was a good opportunity to learn about distracted driving and being safer on the road.”
