Just about every high schooler tries to make it to school without being tardy or marked absent. EHOVE Career Center gives students an awesome incentive to be there every day, on time: a shot at winning a free car. The school has a drawing at the end of every school year to give students with perfect attendance the chance to earn prizes, including an iPad mini, iPod Touch and VISA gift cards. But the big prize is a set of wheels.
This year, 17-year-old Jasmine Ellison’s perfect attendance earned her a 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix GT.
“I’m really excited” said the EHOVE senior, whose home school is Western Reserve. “This will help me in my near future going to college and getting a job”
Ellison has perfect attendance during the last two years.
The Grand Prix was a pleasant surprise, given that the school had placed a decoy outside, leading students to believe that was the car someone would win. In all, 58 EHOVE students had perfect attendance this year. Nine of them attained perfect attendance for two years.
The school had drawings to determine who won the big prize.
The other students with perfect attendance: Benjamin Langan, Huron High School; Melinda Capucini, Perkins; Sarah Bryner, Margaretta; Austin Martin, Monroeville; James Smith, South Central; Matthew Bradley, Perkins; Morgan Grimes, Norwalk; Clement Scheid, Bellevue; Adam Cervelli, Norwalk; Benjamin Daneker, Edison; Akil Pearson, Perkins; John Osborne, New London; Eric Fuller, Vermilion; Mallory Baldwin, Vermilion.
