VICTORY TOWNSHIP — West Shore Educational Service District Criminal Justice Program students recently held an all day event in the atrium of the West Shore Community College Tech Center.  The goal of the event organized by Career Technical Education criminal justice student Wesley Stream, was to increase awareness on the importance of bicycle safety. All students attending the West Shore CTE programs on Tuesday, February 15, 2022 had an opportunity to participate in activities promoting bicycle safety awareness. 

The CTE program is attended by 433 students from the eight local public school districts in Mason, Oceana and Lake counties.  Students from the Manistee area also participate in the educational programs.

The CTE program is supported by a millage in Mason, Oceana and Lake counties. Students from Manistee County attend through tuition. 

The theme of, “Don’t be Insane, Protect your Brain” and bicycle safety was promoted by providing flyers, wristbands, keychains, ongoing videos and posters. Students were gravitated to the information table by freshly made popcorn. Raffle tickets could be earned by playing a ring toss game. The rings thrown were created by the CTE Mechatronics program which represented a brain. Prizes were candy, stress balls imaging a brain, and raffle tickets. The raffle tickets went into a drawing conducted at the end of the day for two “tricked out” bikes which were outfitted with headlights, tail lights, spoke lights, mounted bicycle repair kits, and bike helmets.  Other raffle prizes included bike helmets, t-shirts, bike repair kits, bike lights, a donated bag chair, Starbucks ground coffee, food gift cards, etc.

The activities also included a field sobriety test and tricycle drunk driving course. Students wore goggles intended to simulate being under the influence of drugs or alcohol.  These activities were under the supervision of Michigan State Police Trooper Todd Goodrich and Sgt. Kelsey Case, housed of MSP Hart Post.
