Bill Merrylees Joins YSCVT Staff
April 25, 2014
The Youth Safety Council of Vermont welcomes Bill Merrylees of East Montpelier to its staff. Bill will be presenting the Turn Off Texting demonstration to high schools and driver education programs across Vermont.
The Turn Off Texting demonstration raises awareness about the dangers of distracted driving by putting students behind the wheel of a golf cart to navigate a course of cones while texting. It’s a unique, memorable and effective experience for participants, funded by a grant from the Governor’s Highway Safety Program and support from generous sponsors including AT&T and 802Cars.com.
Bill’s experience with directing substance prevention and health campaigns for youth, coordinating afterschool programs, and bicycle tour-leading and advocacy makes the Youth Safety Council especially glad to welcome him to our staff as a presenter and safety educator.
