Junior wins car in Operation Click drawing
April 20, 2017
The car is on display at the MHS main entrance for a week
Mundelein High School Junior, Daniel Bronfeyn, recently won a car in a drawing held by Operation Click, an area organization that aims to reduce teen fatalities and injuries from motor vehicle crashes. The organization encourages students to develop safe driving habits through education and positive reinforcement.
Bronfeyn, along with many other MHS students, signed a pledge to abide by guidelines set forth by Operation Click that include all aspects of safe driving. Some of those involve wearing seatbelts, not texting while driving, following all the rules of the road, etc. Students chosen by Operation Click to be part of the drawing for the car met pre-determined standards that include attendance, grade point average and any school discipline problems or driving violations. MHS English Instructor Mike Dayton serves as the advisor for Operation Click.
“The buzz surrounding it [winning the car] has made it so much easier to discuss safe driving decisions-especially the ideas of seat belt use and disengagement with phones while driving,” Dayton explained. “We expect this message to continue to resonate with our students and to lead to an injury free prom.”
Bronfeyn won a 2011 Honda Civic that is being displayed at the main entrance to MHS for a week. It was donated by Kunes Country Auto Group of Delevan.
Mundelein High School will host the Save a Life Tour on April 24 to reinforce the idea of safe driving by teens. It is in advance of the MHS Prom set for May 5.
