Wise Wins Award for Road Safety Message

The 2018 Highway Safety and Traffic Blueprint Conference was held this week in Columbia, and a personality from this station won an award.

The Northeast Regional Show-Me Safety Award winner was John Wise, news personality and former emergency medical services responder, for his efforts and passion to promote the “Drive Means Drive” campaign through this radio station. Wise was surprised with the award as the general manager for the radio station told him they had to attend a meeting in Columbia. Also a surprise was the attendance of his wife, Marsha. Wise says he was just doing his job. He added that it’s never about awards. But great when it happens.

The Northeast Region Coalition for Roadway Safety selected Atlanta C-3 School as its Arrive Alive Award winner for both the quantity and quality of safe driving events they hold for the students throughout the entire school, including creating their own mascot “Highway Harvey.” Atlanta School Nurse Teri Majors and one of her students accepted the award on behalf of the school.

Northeast Coalition Facilitator Marisa Ellison says “We appreciate all our partners who continue to work toward zero fatalities on Missouri roads, and we are especially proud of the efforts of Atlanta School and Mr. Wise.” See a photo on the Northeast Region Coalition for Roadway Safety’s facebook page.
