Speaking Engagements

More and more teens have cell phones today, which means more and more teens are at risk for distracted driving.  It is critical that we educate teen drivers about the dangers of driving while texting and distracted driving overall.

KDKA-TV, in partnership with Ford Motor Company Fund, Westfield Insurance, Governors Highway Safety Association, and the Allegheny County Pretrial Services has developed “Taking the Lead: Ford Driving Skills for Life” school assembly development program that addresses the leading causes of teen crashes.  The team brings this one hour presentation to a different area high school each month, along with a panel of experts for Q&A with the students.

Michelle Johnson, founder of the Connor Johnson Foundation, appears as impact speaker to inform and educate students on the importance of safe driving habits and to give first-hand experience of the consequences of poor decisions.

Access the “Taking the Lead: Ford Driving Skills for Life” website…  PARENTS:  Learn about your responsibilities behind the wheel.  The example you set can save a life!
