Faith Family Academy Student Wins Free Car from Drive Casa for Perfect Attendance

Congratulations to Alondra Elizondo for winning our Perfect Attendance Contest! In a dramatic giveaway event on May 25th, 5 qualifying finalists drew keys and took turns trying to start the engine. Alondra, the second student to draw a key, was that lucky winner!

Faith Family Academy students, families, and staff gathered Thursday, May 25th to see a high school student with perfect attendance win a free car! Drive Casa, a local used-car dealership, donated a car to one lucky Faith Family Academy high school student who had perfect attendance during the school year. In a dramatic giveaway event on May 25th, 5 qualifying finalists drew keys and took turns trying to start the engine. Alondra Elizondo was that lucky winner!

Superintendent Mollie Purcell is thrilled with the results the school has seen already this year. "This year we've seen an increase in attendance and in perfect attendance," Purcell said. "Obviously, if a student is not in school, they're not going to learn. We try to get them to see the value of coming to school." This new initiative has already shown a major increase of almost 2 percentage points in high school student attendance rate at Faith Family, which was already at 93%."As a proud partner in the community, Drive Casa is thrilled that we've been able to help increase attendance with this big giveaway. We hope to inspire kids to stay in school and work hard every day" said Streeter Berry, Co-Founder and President of Drive Casa.

Here's how it works: For each cycle of school that a student has perfect attendance, he or she was entered for one chance to win a car from Drive Casa. There are 6 cycles in a school year, so a student with perfect attendance all year had their name entered 6 times. At the end of the year a drawing was held to randomly select the winner of the car which was given directly to the winning student or family.
