CHS Battle of the Belts

Team with the fastest time

We Wanna See you Buckle Down (Brooke Doyle, Sophie Martino, Jenna Skype, Kate Verenazi) are this year’s team with the fastest time.

Chatham High School held its 2019 Preliminary Battle of the Belts on April 3. Battle of the Belts encourages students to buckle up and raises awareness about safe driving habits among teens. This event is sponsored by the CHS SADD chapter. In total, there were 13 teams of four that participated, including two faculty teams. Great prizes including free prom tickets, Stewart’s gift cards, Dunkin Donuts gift cards and Dairy Queen gift cards were given away. A special thanks to Mrs. Chittenden and Mrs. Persons for volunteering the use of their vans! Also, thanks to the Columbia County Sheriff’s Department for officiating the event. Funding for the Battle of the Belts prizes was provided by the Sean Patrick French Memorial Walk/Run.
