District 50 Announces Participation in S.C. National Safety Council’s Alive at 25 Program

On May 11th, Greenwood School District 50 officially announced its participation in the South Carolina National Safety Council’s Alive at 25 program. Alive at 25 is offered to drivers between the ages of 15 and 24 as an early intervention program to help prevent traffic violations, collisions, and/or fatalities.
