Hundreds hear TXT L8R message at state conference back button

5-21-2012 – (HHS) – After losing a family member to distracted driving, three sisters at Hoover High School conceptualized a campaign to get the attention of their peers. Appropriately called TXT L8R (Text Later), the campaign has taken off and gained statewide notoriety over the past few weeks.

After a local media blitz which included coverage in local media outlets including The Birmingham News and ABC 33/40 [see media imbed below], Eboni, Mahogani and Destini Smith presented the TXT L8R campaign to an audience of 500 students and faculty members attending the FCCLA (Family, Career and Community Leaders of America) Conference at Chilton County High School in Clanton in late April. The Smiths served as keynote speakers, sharing their inspiration, process for campaign development and campaign implementation tactics.

As part of the conference, students and adults present took the TXT L8R pledge and were given thumb rings as reminders of the commitment to not text and drive.

The Hoover Coalition Promoting a Safe and Healthy Community assisted with the TXT L8R campaign held during the spring months at Hoover High School.
