Eta Sigma Gamma Presents Safe Brake

Safe Brake is a highway safety awareness campaign that Truman State University’s Eta Sigma Gamma (ESG) Health Science Honorary sponsors to promote safe driving, particularly during midterm break. This year Safe Brake will take place from 10 a.m. March 3 through 5 p.m. March 7. Additionally, from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. March 6 Truman’s Flame to the Second Century will be lit to commemorate lives lost on the road and is open to anyone who wants to place flowers there in memory of a loved one. There will be a poster adjacent to the flame with the names of those Truman students who died on local highways. An information table will be set up from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. March 4-5 in the Student Union Building.

“Safe Brake is an important prevention strategy aimed at making Truman students more conscious of their choices and consequences while driving,” said Weslee Chew, ESG vice president and head of Safe Brake. “We honor our Truman classmates who lost their lives on the road by educating others and preventing more tragedy.”

Since 1995, Truman State University has lost a total of 11 students to automobile-related crashes, averaging two per year. In 2007, not one student’s life was lost on the road. Eta Sigma Gamma asks people to take an active role and stop by the Student Union Building to see what they can do.
Eta Sigma Gamma is a National Professional Health Science Honorary since 1967. Truman’s Gamma Rho Chapter was established nationally in 1995.
