Thompsons help

Letter to the Editor

Colfax's Future Business Leaders Club May 9 brought Jim Thompson, father of 2012 CHS graduate Sam Thompson, and Palouse Regional Transportation Planning Organization (PRTPO) to address a high school assembly about the dangers of texting and driving. According to an AAA poll, 94 percent of teens driving acknowledge the dangers of texting and driving, but 35 percent admitted to doing it anyway? 35 percent? How sad.

This is why Jim and Lisa Thompson take the time to go to schools and driver’s education classes.

We are very hopeful that, because of the Thompsons' help in preparing the students of Colfax High School, no one will forget the consequences of texting and driving and distracted driving. Our hope is that students will remember the statistics, remember the people who made those mistakes, and remember that every time they pick up a cell phone or a distraction it’s a chance that they are taking.

We appreciate the Thompsons help in preparing our students to make the right decision, to put down the distraction and to put down the phone and to drive safely.
