Millennium Fellowship Project
The No More Texting While Driving Project aims to raise awareness for the dangers of texting while driving and make our lawmakers aware of the things they can do to end this problem. The project will do this by writing an editorial for their local and state newspapers. The end goal is to save lives not only through raising awareness but also through pushing for legislation in SC to prevent people from texting while driving.
