As previously reported by Community Impact Newspaper, the Kailee Mills Foundation was formed by family members after KISD student Kailee Mills died in a car collision Oct. 28, 2017; Kailee was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.
The recent sign installation initiative is part of the nonprofit's ongoing efforts to promote seat belt safety awareness and to support other families who have lost a loved one in a car accident by providing financial assistance and counseling services. The Kailee Mills Foundation has also served as the spokesperson for the Texas Department of Transportation's Click It or Ticket campaign for two consecutive years.
The sign installation initiative culminated with a celebration May 28 at Klein Collins High School, which followed Kailee's birthday May 27. The celebration also took place days before Kailee would have graduated from Klein Collins High School on June 3. www.kaileemillsfoundation.org
