Hoquiam High School sophomore testifies in Legislature

Hannah Baumgardner, center, stands with Washington State Patrol Chief John Batiste, left, and Assistant Chief Ron Rupke in Olympia while Baumgardner was in Olympia to testify before the Senate Transportation Committee on a bill that would increase penalties for texting and driving. Baumgardner, a 16-year-old Hoquiam High School sophomore, cheerleader and Miss Grays Harbor Outstanding Teen contestant, testified Tuesday on the bill, which was proposed by the Washington Traffic Safety Commission. It would help the state obtain additional federal dollars to combat distracted driving. “Teenagers don’t always think to the future. I met the grandmother of 7-month-old Enzo Williams who was killed in a crash caused by a texting driver. That was profound for me, I will never forget it and I will never text and drive,” Baumgardner said. The Hoquiam Cheer Team’s distracted driving project, grant funded by State Farm Insurance, was dedicated to the memory of Williams.
