Distracted driving is near and dear to IA Construction.
On Friday, May 17, 2019, IA Construction held their 4th annual “Help Stop Distracted Driving” Golf Outing at the Wanango Country Club in Reno, PA. Each year, IA Construction invites employees from other Barrett Industries subsidiaries to enjoy a fun day of playing golf while also spreading the word about the dangers of distracted driving. This year, IA Construction had 120 participants, and 15 employees helping to make the golf outing a success.
All proceeds that are raised from the outing are used to fund distracted driving advocates, Jacy Good & Steve Johnson in their “Hang Up & Drive” campaign. Throughout the year, IA Construction supports Jacy and Steve to promote their campaign in their local schools to help further spread the message about the dangers of distracted driving.
Throughout the past four years, with the help of IA Construction, Jacy and Steve have been to seven schools in the IA region and reached an estimated 2,400 students and faculty members.
To think, this whole effort within IA started when Regional Manager, Jon Miller told his employees that his goal was to save one life by ending distracted driving.
