Local High School Seniors Eligible To Win New Car With Perfect Attendance

Going to school just got sweeter for high school Seniors at over 200 schools in 26 Tennessee counties because of the Drive For Perfection Program. Drive For Perfection, an initiative presented by Chevrolet and the Middle Tennessee Chevrolet Dealers in conjunction with the Tennessee Department of Education, will award five lucky students with a new 2008 Chevy Cobalt sedan for having perfect attendance during the 2007-2008 school year.

According to the US Department of Education, students who have poor attendance for reasons other than illness are also more likely to drop out and to fall behind their peers in the classroom. Now in its second year, The Chevrolet Drive For Perfection Program was created to give Seniors an additional incentive to finish their high school careers strong in order to adequately prepare for post-secondary education or the workforce.

"Literacy and education are two initiatives that Chevrolet and its dealers champion through their support of several initiatives in the Southeast region," said Tim Hudgens, Chevrolet marketing manager for GM's Southeast region. "The Tennessee Department of Education is charged with the significant task of educating the state's youth, and our local Chevy dealers are honored to provide support to them and high schools in their communities."

At the completion of the school year, a final list will be developed with finalist from all five school regions and a reverse-order drawing will be held after graduation to determine the winner in each region. Perfect attendance will be determined by an eligible student's attendance record for the first 180 days of the 2007-2008 school year as submitted by the Local Education Agencies.
