St. Stephens football team and Fort Washakie youth basketball team join Fremont County highway safety campaign

    A pair of Wind River Reservation athletic teams have joined the Eastern Shoshone and Northern Arapaho tribes and Wyoming Department of Transportation in a billboard campaign to raise awareness about seat-belt awareness and the dangers of drinking and driving.
    The St. Stephens High School football team is helping to promote seat-belt awareness, while a Fort Washakie youth basketball team coached by George Abeyta is promoting good choices associated with drinking and driving.
    “We appreciate being part of this partnership and being able to promote peer-to-peer messages delivered by our student-athletes to other young people,” said St. Stephens High School Football Coach Billy Brost of Riverton. “This partnership is about saving lives, and along with WYDOT, we are proud to be part of this effort. Seat belts save lives.”
    The Wind River Reservation highway safety program is in its ninth year in Fremont County, and it has featured hundreds of youth. The program is a highway safety project of the Eastern Shoshone and Northern Arapaho tribes, the Wyoming Seatbelt Coalition and WYDOT. For more information, go to #buckleup4lifewy.
