Northwest Students Create Pedestrian Safety PSA

Northwest High School students teamed up with Montgomery County Police, Montgomery County Fire & Rescue Services, and Holy Cross Germantown Hospital to produce a public service announcement about pedestrian safety.

The video, which was directed by students Rishabh Karanth and Logan Loewenstien, features a student walking to school. As she’s walking through Germantown, she receives a text, which she opens as she crosses the street.

The video shows the consequences that can occur when pedestrians are distracted as they walk.

Montgomery County Police praised the video on their Facebook page. They said the following people were instrumental in producing the PSA:

  • Officer Wesley Allen, a school resource officer at Northwest High.
  • Jimmy D’Andrea, Northwest’s principal.
  • Officer Marcus Dixon, a Germantown community service officer.
  • Lilly Greenlee, a media service technician at Northwest.
  • Officer John Johnson from Montgomery County Police’s School Safety Section

The following students, officers, and teachers appeared as actors in the video:

  • Adele Williams
  • Matthew Brady
  • Officer Allen
  • Officer Dixon
  • Officer Johnson
  • Mr. D’andrea
  • Kollin Miller
  • Warren Dansou
