Safety Olympics, week of April 17, Pitt State and other schools…
this is second year.
Teams compete in safety categories. Growing. Now pulling in TX and OK schools. Then moving north. Trying to make this nationwide.
Looking for sponsorships.
Pitt State is hosting again this year. Pat Flynn would like to speak to this group about it. Also a construction expo going on that week.
Phil Shoemaker is the new liaison between ASSP and the schools.
Discussion re: CSG donation to this Olympics. Feedback from students who participated said it was a great experience, per Chuck Rutledge. Phil Shoemaker gave good feedback as well. Helps the students and the schools because they can identify strengths and weaknesses. Chuck Rutledge moved to donate $500. Dave Ezell moved to donate $1,000. Jim Kahlfeldt seconded the $1,000 motion. All in favor, none opposed, motion approved.
KU is going to be starting a safety program. Not much info available yet.
