Safe Teen Driving Club Welcomes Ms. Jackie Holmes as Spokesperson

Atlanta, Feb. 27, 2008 – The Safe Teen Driving Club welcomes Ms. Jackie Holmes – Auburn University Senior, Miss America Contestant and passionate ambassador on teen driving safety issues – and appointed her this week as Club Spokesperson.  In her new position Ms. Holmes will take an active role speaking to students and parents on behalf of the Club, and making her unique perspective on teen driving safety known through the Club’s newsletter to its subscribers nationwide.

Ms. Holmes chose teenage driving as her personal focus after six of her peers died in car accidents throughout her high school years, each in a crash that could have been prevented.  She counsels teens that “knowledge is power, and with more knowledge students will be given the power to make intelligent decisions behind the wheel of a car.”Ms. Holmes shares her message that safe driving saves lives by traveling throughout the state of Georgia, speaking to students and parents. Teachers, PTA representatives, youth groups, parent organizations and others are encouraged to contact Jackie to arrange speaking and educational engagements.

Her clear and compelling point of view on teen driving captures the attention of teens, who suffer more injury and fatality from driving crashes than any other cause.  Ms. Holmes competes in the Miss America Organization and is the current Miss Rome Georgia (www.missrome.org). Each contestant in the Miss America Organization must select a community service platform about which she feels passionate. Jackie has been promoting Teenage Driving Safety and Awareness through her pageant activities for the past four years.   Ms. Holmes is a senior at Auburn University majoring in Public Relations with a minor in Music. She began competing in the Miss America Organization after high school to earn money for college.“We are overjoyed to have Jackie helping to spread the word and educate teenagers on driving safety issues,” says Club CEO Allan Ramsay. “Her enthusiasm for working with teens and her unfortunate experience in losing friends throughout high school gives her real credibility with young people. She’ll certainly have a positive impact on those who meet her and hear her speak.”About Safe Teen Driving Club
