Alpharetta High's Andrew Jeschke Wins First Road To Safety Competition.

By Temura Bly;

The first "Road To Safety" Video competition was held this past Thursday at Alpharetta High School in the media center at 6pm.

With a crowd of an estimated 25 plus, familiar faces were in attendance including Milton Principal Jones, Alpharetta Principal Dunn, and Milton City Council Member Longoria.

A friendly wager was placed between the two competing principals with the loser buying the winner lunch...Congratulations to Mr. Dunn!

Two videos were submitted from Milton High School and two from Alpharetta High helping to kick of the "Road To Safety" inaugural event.

With the help of the Fulton County Board Member Katie Reeves,'s Lisa Cauley, and Tim Enloe of, the competition plans on including all North Fulton High Schools north of the Chattahoochee River in 2011.

Every single video submitted for this year's competition was impressive and the judging intense.

From a fictional safe driving character dubbed "Safety Sam" to a shootout with special ops, every student involved poured their heart and soul into the project. Each approaching the topic in a unique way while still driving the message home.

If you would like to view the videos, awards will be presented and videos shown at Alpharetta City Hall on December 6th. Milton City Hall will showcase the videos on December 20th.

In the weeks to come, and will be showcasing all four videos along with the wonderful sponsors as well.
