Waubonsee Driver Safety Program Recognized

Waubonsee Community College’s Driver Safety Program – part of the college’s department of Workforce Development - was recently recognized during an awards banquet at the National Safety Council Congress and Expo in Atlanta, Ga.

The awards were presented to Dennis Schmidt, Driver Safety Manager, and included a Remarkable Results award in the Alive at 25 category, and two Trendsetter awards in the Defensive Driving Courses (DDC).

“These awards demonstrate the continuing commitment by the Driver Safety Program at Waubonsee and our court partners, the 16th and 23rd Judicial Circuits, to reinforce defensive driving principles with drivers in Kane, Kendall and DeKalb Counties and focus on strategies to prevent traffic citations and collision-related injuries and fatalities,” Schmidt said.

Schmidt also participated in a meeting of the National Safety Council Defensive Driving Courses International Advisory Committee, which works with the National Safety Council in developing and revising DDC courses.
