Russellville High School received a lesson in seat belt safety Thursday morning as senior Alex Thompson participated in a mock-crash organized by the Cole County R-1 School Resource Officer Joey Matherne and the character council. Supporting agencies included the Cole County Sheriff’s Department, Russellville-Lohman Volunteer Fire District, Weber Funeral Home and the Missouri Department of Transportation. Earlier in the month, a seat belt check showed 90 percent of students were wearing their safety device and Matherne said he will conduct another check at the end of the month, where he hopes to find 100 percent seat belt usage.
