SafeRides Honors Volunteers

Westport junior and senior high school students who gave up Saturday nights—not to mention prom nights and homecoming games—to provide confidential, safe rides home have been honored by SafeRides of Westport based at Christ & Holy Trinity Church. Image

Honored with the organizations Junior Gem Award, given to the junior who has volunteered the most “and worked on important Saturdays which are often difficult to fill,” such as proms and homecoming, was Emily Lewis, group officials said. For the same tireless volunteer efforts, they said, the Senior Savior Award went to senior Lea Sellon.

The Executive Board MVP award went to junior Bennett Propp and senior Elizabeth Coogan for having “devoted the most time to training, organizing and volunteering for the Executive Board” comprising 13 students and five adults, said Julie Mombello, SafeRides head adult coordinator.

“The main purpose of SafeRides is to reduce drunk driving accidents and save lives,” said Julie Mombello. “We hope to provide teenagers with an alternative to driving after drinking. While we in no way condone teen drinking, we do acknowledge that it does happen.”
