Washington, DC– This week Congressman Diane Black (R-TN-06) welcomed students from the Cookeville High School Traffic Education Saves Teens (TEST) club to the nation’s capital. The students were selected to represent Tennessee at the annual National Organizations for Youth Safety (NOYS) Teen Safe Driving Summit on October 19th. Congressman Black met with the students in her office to discuss the success of the TEST club and personally congratulate the students for their achievement. Following their meeting, Congressman Black bestowed each student with a Congressional challenge coin. Black released the below statement:

“We know that teens and young adults account for a significant portion of motor vehicle accidents in Tennessee and across the country. We also know that teens listen to the counsel of their peers, which is why organizations like the Cookeville High School TEST club are so critically important. The TEST club arms students in our community with the facts about safe driving and empowers them to share that truth with others in engaging ways. These club members and their advisers are leaders in our community and they are to be commended for their dedication to raising awareness of traffic safety,” said Congressman Diane Black. “It was a privilege to welcome them to our nation’s capital and to personally thank them for their efforts.”
