For the fifth straight year, Bill Pearce Courtesy Honda in Reno donated a new car to give away at the “Fit for Perfect Attendance” event held last Saturday. This year, North Valleys High School salutorian Anna McFarlane was the lucky winner.
Nearly 130 Washoe County high school seniors with outstanding attendance were eligible this year to enter the drawing for a 2013 Honda Fit. This program was organized by the dealership and its sponsors to encourage students to stay in school.
“It was my husband John’s idea to start this event,” said Courtesy Honda owner Sandy Raffealli. “He was an educator before, so he knows how important it is for students to stay in school.”
Raffealli said the couple believes that attending school every day allows students to become more successful.
“You can’t learn anything if you’re not at school,” she said. “Going to class every day teaches kids life skills and prepares them for a job in the future.”
McFarlane had not missed a day of school all year and graduated second in her North Valleys class.
The program has had a positive impact on the community and has succeeded by motivating students to go to school, Raffealli said.
“Several administrators came up to us during the event and said that they were seeing increased attendance at their schools,” Raffealli said. “I believe we all have a responsibility to help out the schools and it is our goal to continue to support education.”
It’s back to school time and Bill Pearce Courtesy Honda is giving away another Fit for Perfect Attendance. All Washoe County high school seniors are eligible…all you have to do is go to school…everyday! You could be driving away in a new, 2013 Honda Fit from Bill Pearce Courtesy Honda. Please see your school counselor if you have any additional questions and good luck!
