One deserving Granbury High School student will win a free car at the end of the 2021-22 school year courtesy of Granbury Nissan and Pinnacle Bank. Students will strive all year long to earn tickets for perfect attendance for a chance for the 2020 Nissan Versa. The announcement was made during the GHS pep rally on September 3, 2021.
Granbury Nissan and Pinnacle Bank have teamed up with Strive to Drive TX in an all-out effort to educate students in Granbury ISD and their parents on the importance of being in class, as attendance has a direct effect on academic performance. Data from the Bureau of Educational Research in Illinois shows that consistent school attendance is directly linked to positive behavior, increased participation in extracurricular activities, higher grades and higher overall educational outcomes.
In May 2022, the names of ten finalists will be drawn from all tickets, and each will receive a key. Only one key will start the car.
For perfect attendance while enrolled for the entire six weeks grading period, students earn tickets based on the following system:
one ticket each six week grading period with perfect attendance
five extra tickets each semester with perfect attendance
ten extra tickets for the whole school year with perfect attendance
The vehicle will be featured at school events throughout the year, according to GHS principal Jeremy Ross.
The eventual winner will win the car along with tax, title, and license paid by the program.
