Remembering Stephanie Bellotti

Stephanie Bellotti

Raised in Loomis California Stephanie was a senior at Del Oro High School. She belonged to the Golden Eagle Band Color Guard, and excelled in art and technology. She hoped to pursue a career in fashion with a focus in costume design. For her senior project she managed the construction of Color Guard Costumes and made flags for the group. She was often inspired and had a noteworthy sense of humor. Many students, teachers and staff knew her and treasured her spirit and originality.

Stephanie and a friend died in a single car accident that should not have happened. We feel that inexperience behind the wheel was the cause. Two beautiful young ladies died that day. Many more have died in very similar circumstances since that tragedy. If we allow this to continue we are in a sense condoning it. No parent should lose their sixteen year old because of driving inexperience. We must at least make an effort to save our vulnerable youth.

  • Christine Karr

    “As a mother of teenagers, I know that teaching them to drive is one of the most important milestones we cannot take lightly. Providing them with the opportunity to experience difficult and dangerous driving conditions, so that they will know how to react when those conditions arise, is priceless education that may save their lives.”

    A long time Roseville resident, Christine Karr is the owner of Karr Business Services, which has provided accounting, payroll and tax services for small businesses since 1999. Christine and her husband Russ together have 4 children and 2 grandchildren.

  • David Albright

    Having retired after many years in motorsports and seeing the introduction of the Street School concept during those years, I have seen the absolute value of additional training and practice for ones driving skills – especially young drivers. The SBTF purpose is reinforced by the fact that we have teenagers – one who has been through the training twice.

    Dave is an individual investor with two kids. He and his wife Pam have one in college and one in middle school. They spend most of their time with their family and volunteering in the community and schools.
