Hutchinson’s Lilliana Wilson, Drive to Zero Senior Shoutout Presented By Kansas Department of Transportation

Lilliana Wilson is a sophomore at Hutchinson High School where her first year as a member of the SAFE Club is nearing an end. Wilson originally got involved with SAFE after one of the club officers introduced her to the group.

“I got involved in SAFE club to show people that being safe is more important than being cool. Officer Fine was how I was informed about the club I am so thankful I was able to get involved in a club like this one,” said Wilson. There are many things about SAFE Wilson really enjoys.

“The best part about SAFE club so far is working the pledge to wear your seat belt table, being able to encourage people to wear their seat belt and at the end of the day saving people’s life by you just saying only a couple words to get them to wear their seat belt, that is my favorite part so far,” said Wilson.

Wilson feels it is an important cause and she is going to continue to support and encourage her classmates. “I want my classmates to be informed about SAFE club to see that there are people out  there who care about everyone’s safety and are actually trying to help everyone in our school’s lives and live a safe and happy life,” said Wilson.  Also involved in STUCO, CTC, and Sign Language Club, somehow Wilson finds the time to also play volleyball and softball.  Away from school you can usually find Wilson hitting a few balls in the cages or just hanging out with friends.

“I enjoy going to the softball cages and getting better as a teammate to help us through our hard times, I also enjoy spending time with my friends and making amazing memories with them,” said Wilson.

The sophomore offers this advice to other students looking to join a worthwhile club.  “If you are interested in joining SAFE Club go talk to your school resource officer or administrator. Ours, Officer Fine, always loves the company from his students. I highly encourage every single one of my classmates to want to get involved in helping our community become a Safe place for each other,” said Wilson.
