James Clemens nabs national award for PSA

MADISON – JetsPress students at James Clemens High School produced a public service announcement that has won a national contest.

James Clemens students Riley Neal and Robert White submitted the PSA, “How Well Do You Know Your Friends,” to the “Greatest Save Teen PSA Program” contest. The KinderVision Foundation, a 501c3 nonprofit organization, sponsors the program.

The contest challenged students to create a peer-to-peer personal safety message to raise awareness about the dangers of sex crimes among teenagers and ideas to prevent victimization, John S. Peck said. Peck is Public Relations Manager for Madison City Schools.

Set at a party, the 30-second spot is in a teenager’s home. A girl asks her friend to get her another drink. Speaking to the camera, the boy says they know each other’s secrets, and she thoroughly trusts him. He goes to the kitchen, pours a beer, takes a small pill from his shirt pocket and drops the pill into the girl’s drink.

Representatives from the KinderVision crime prevention program visited James Clemens to honor Neal and White and their teacher sponsor Clay Combs. State Sen. Bill Holtzclaw presented $1,500 for KinderVision’s continued work and JetsPress at James Clemens.

Other guests included Madison Police Chief Dave Jernigan, Madison County Assistant District Attorney Kevin Turner, James Clemens Principal Dr. Brian Clayton and MCS Chief Academic Officer Dr. Heather Donaldson.
