The hard work of one high school senior is paying off after he won a car Saturday for perfect attendance.Damonte Ranch High School student, Anthony Herd, was the winner of a new Honda Fit, thanks to the Bill Pearce Courtesy Honda dealership.
“It feels crazy,” Herd told Channel 2 News. “There’s just no words to explain it because I just didn’t know if I would win or not.”It’s all part of the “A Fit For Perfect Attendance” contest, sponsored by Channel 2 and Bill Pearce Honda. Eligible students completed the school year with perfect attendance.
The dealership tells us this contest has come a long way.”Before we started, there were about 20 kids that had perfect attendance,” said Sandy Raffealli, co-owner of Bill Pearce Courtesy Honda. “This year, we have about 136. So, we’re really excited about that. That’s a big increase.”
Anthony tells us it’s important to go to class. Otherwise, you miss out.”When you miss class, you have to make up things,” he said. “I’m a more hands-on person to school and stuff like that.”
After graduating from high school, Anthony says he wants to go into the Air Force and get into the integrated avionics field.
Congratulations to him!
