Practice safe text: No texting and driving

Submitted by Cassandra Smith

The Kappa Pi chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. is beginning its "Practice Safe Text" campaign. It is urging drivers to practice safe text by not texting and driving. It encourages everyone to be aware of the dangers of texting while driving because this is something that everyone can prevent. Chapter members will have a table in the K-State Student Union, where you can pledge to "Practice Safe Text" and learn more about it.

The table will be in the Union from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. the following dates:

  • Monday, Nov. 5
  • Wednesday, Nov. 7
  • Thursday, Nov. 8
  • Tuesday,  Nov. 13
  • Wednesday, Nov. 14
  • Thursday, Nov. 15
At 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 28, in Forum Hall, Amanda Umscheid will tell her story about how she lost her sister due to texting and driving. This could be a learning experience for everyone because a lot of people think that this could never happen to them. Be sure to check out the link to get a preview of her story. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GP4tW-t6vjw
