Wayzata Students Create Nonprofit called ‘Vigilance Safety’
A group of Wayzata High School students are continuing work they started on a Destination Imagination project by founding a nonprofit called Vigilance Safety.
The students had a idea to put radio frequency tags in guns so they could be detected when near a school and trigger an automatic lockdown.
“We care about the safety and our peers’ safety and we hear about this all the time on the news,” said Neev Zeroni. “It makes us want to fight for a solution.”
Students gathered in a Plymouth park on Thursday to talk about school safety awareness and their nonprofit’s work.
“Although the solution may not completely solve school shootings, we know we’re here to help and it can reduce the casualties,” said May Zeroni. “That is why we want to put our name out there and get our idea further developed so it can really be put out there in the real world.”
A student named Carlee Freeman says she’s dedicated to working on school safety solutions because she has a younger sibling.
“We’re also thinking about our younger siblings and their friends as well,” said Freeman.
