WASHINGTON, D.C. – Oxford High School students Brad Beckwith and Jacob Murrer recently paid a visit to meet U.S. Congresswoman Claudia Tenney as part of their mission in SADD SPEAKs.
The week-long SADD SPEAKs in the nation’s capitol afforded 15 students nationwide an opportunity to lead the SADD organization in its advocacy efforts and before the students’ own state and local governments.
Beckwith and Murrer were able to spread their message personally to legislative correspondents of U.S. Senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, and then to U.S. Congresswoman Claudia Tenney herself.
“We told the representatives our personal stories and how we wanted to stop distracted, drunk, drugged, and drowsy driving in our communities,” said Beckwith.
Murrer said as part of their meetings, he and Beckwith urged the representatives to join the Road to Zero pledge.
