CHATTANOOGA (WRCB)- Whitfield Career Academy students and others from throughout the Tennessee Valley participated in the "Arrive Alive Tour" from Michigan during a recent visit to the Miller-Motte Technical College campus.

Students used a driving simulator that illustrates the dangers of texting while driving.

High school counselor Wendy Hanson said promoting post-secondary education is a priority at Whitfield Career Academy. Thanks to a grant from the Georgia Appalachian Center for Higher Education (GACHE) at North Georgia College, the high school is able to offer students several campus tours this year.
