Saks High School

Saks High School Saks High School, Anniston, Alabama

In the late 1940's, the Joseph Saks family donated land for a school in the Saks community in the northern suburb of Anniston. The school would become Saks Jr. High School covering grades 1-9. A small, white building would house the first grades at the school, but a new brick structure complete with a Jr. High gym that was "state of the art," at the time, was to follow. The school was expanded to include senior high grades in the late 50's with the first graduating class to come in 1962. Today, Saks enjoys a campus that includes three buildings for classes, two gyms, a band room, a choir room, a large home economics department, and a beautiful athletic complex with four fields, but the campus is still known as "Dear ol' S.H.S."

What is TVOC? - Teen Vehicle Operations Course

BIRMINGHAM – Children’s of Alabama and FEAR THIS, Inc., are teaming up to offer teenagers and parents a “Teen Vehicle Operations Course (TVOC)” Feb. 17-18, at the Talladega Superspeedway.

Registration is open for this eight-hour, in-car driving safety course. The cost is $75. This is a behind-the-wheel program for teens, parents and new drivers designed and taught by police officers. Space is limited. Any 15-year-old with a valid learner or driver’s permit may participate. A parent or legal guardian is required to attend this course with teens ages 15-18. To register or for more information, visit https://imsva91-ctp.trendmicro.com:443/wis/clicktime/v1/query?url=https%3a%2f%2ftvoc.ws%2fabout%2f.&umid=1A7597F4-61E1-4B05-8E8D-BF206C20923C&auth=e133adff00cc145aa50d98b73c1fb7a971aac781-609c202e972da84fed308a9d7415fa51ec7ffcb8

Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of teen fatalities in Alabama and the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, six teenagers ages 16-19 die every day from motor vehicle injuries.

“Children’s of Alabama is excited about working with FEAR THIS to offer TVOC for the first time in Alabama,” said Marie Crew, Director of Safe Kids Alabama. “Our goal is to help young drivers gain confidence in handling critical situations on the road while giving parents the confidence that they are educating their child the best way possible about road safety,” she said.

Many teens are faced with situations that conventional driver’s education does not teach. TVOC participants will learn critical skills to help prevent crashes through specialized in-car training and classroom instruction. The course is created to give attendees assurance and peace of mind in the driver’s seat.

"Our teen drivers face situations on the road they have not been trained to handle,” said Woodrow Gaines, president and founder of FEAR THIS, Inc. “This course will simulate many common driving errors so they know what to do and keep them safe behind the wheel."
