CIHS partnered with AT&T and held the #Itcanwait event

On Tuesday, April 10, 2018, CIHS partnered with AT&T to deliver an important message about the dangers of distracted driving. AT&T brought a VR experience which provided students with a dramatic encounter with real-life stories of distracted driving and shocking statistics around the issue. CIHS is the third school in the nation to provide this experience to its students. The feedback from the students was overwhelmingly positive.
Participants at the event include:
Christine Moore, AT&T Director of External Affairs
Terri Leon, Director, Oxnard Union High School District
Guadalupe Reyes, Director, Oxnard Union High School District
Ray Senesac, Principal, Channel Islands High School
Marianne Ramos, Asst. Principal, Channel Islands High School
Sgt. Daniel Shrubb, Oxnard Police Dept.
Sr. Officer Paul Knapp, Oxnard Police Dept.
School Resource Office Tamara McCready, Oxnard Police Dept.
Betsi Cervantes, District Representative, Office of Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson
Jeannette Sanchez-Palacios, District Director, Office of Assemblymember Jacqui Irwin
In addition to the important safety message, Channel Islands High School and Asst. Principal Ramos both received Certificates of Recognition from the office of Assemblymember Jacqui Irwin and office of Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson. Certificates were issued as a special recognition for their commitment and efforts to ensure that CIHS students had the opportunity to participate in the AT&T “It Can Wait” event. It was also noted that Asst. Principal Ramos’ passion and persistence were one of the major reasons that Channel Islands was selected to be the only stop in Ventura County.
