The Keys to Success - and a Car: High School Senior Gets Free Vehicle for Perfect Attendance
A high school student has been awarded a brand new Toyota Scion after she managed to be at school every single day during her senior year.
Stormy Brewer, a senior at Brazos Valley High School, was awarded the car after she was randomly selected through a local car dealership's “It Pays to Stay in School” program.
The challenge is to have perfect attendance.
On Sunday at the College Station Hilton, Brewer was selected and thrilled to win the car.
Paul Atkinson, who owns Atkinson Toyota, told KBTX: "You know these kids are here tonight, not because they're the valedictorian or salutatorian, or the captain of their football or basketball or volleyball team. They're here because they made a commitment and they fulfilled that commitment."
Each school year the dealership issues the challenge to the local schools and this year, 1,200 students signed up to take part in the test. Of that number, about 240 were successful and their names were placed in a hat.
From there, one grand prize winner was chosen, while 55 students got $1,000 scholarships.
Brewer plans to attend Texas A&M in the fall and will have new wheels to take her to campus.
