SCV to honor White Ribbon Week

As graduation season approaches for high school and college students, Santa Clarita Valley businesses and organizations will rally around White Ribbon Week as a way to encourage the class of 2012 to drive safely.

The White Ribbon Week card for the class of 2012 lists the names of five teens killed in driving-related crashes since 2006.

The white ribbon campaign began in 1997 in response to concerns over the high number of local teenagers who lost their lives in vehicular collisions as a result of bad decisions to drive recklessly or while impaired.

Deputy Mike Shapiro of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station will formally kick off White Ribbon Week on May 18 with a presentation to Valencia High School's class of 2012.

Students will be able to pick up their white ribbons mounted on "drive safely" cards along with their caps and gowns. The ribbons are worn to remind graduates to drive responsibly as they celebrate.

The white ribbon campaign is part of a program initiated by Frontier Toyota with the assistance of Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital, the Los Angeles County Sheriff Department's Santa Clarita Valley Station, Safe Rides, the city of Santa Clarita and The Signal.
