If all Northwest Region Coalition for Roadway Safety members were as passionate as ICU nurse Ray Staggs, the Blueprint message would be everywhere, every day, throughout the 20 counties of the Northwest District. Ray works twelve-hour shifts in the ICU and still finds time to devote to spreading the message of the Coalition, in addition to being a full-time husband and father. Ray formerly worked as a trauma nurse and has seen first-hand the results of what might have been avoidable crashes. He has made it his goal to reduce fatalities in our region and volunteers at every opportunity to educate the public on the dangers of distracted driving, impaired driving and unrestrained drivers and passengers.
This year, Ray has worked closely with Bishop LeBlond High School in St. Joseph, Missouri, with the Battle of the Belt program. He assisted them in their seatbelt checks, education programs and continues to plan programs, even though the Battle of the Belt program has ended for this year. Thanks for all you do, Ray!
