Student drivers from Harrison, Doddridge, and Taylor counties took part in the Driver Education Rodeo held at Robert C. Byrd High School on Thursday, April 25. The rodeo is an annual teen safe driving competition sponsored by AAA. The Rodeo is held to teach the importance of safe driving, and how important it is to always stay focused while driving.
The competition included a skills portion where students test their skills and safety maneuvers and a written aptitude test which challenged students’ knowledge of the road’s rules.
The skills portion of the test was judged by local law enforcement, including the Clarksburg Police Department, driver education instructors, and AAA staff.
Robert C. Byrd High School senior Eli Williams won third place in the Rodeo.
“I give all the credit to Mr. Nutter, RCB’s driving education program coordinator, I took the class to perfect my driving skills, and I wouldn’t have been able to place in the Rodeo without him and the knowledge he taught me”, said Williams.
Williams was awarded a $150 cash prize and trophy. Williams is the only student from Clarksburg to place in the Rodeo.
