HOUSTON – May 13, 2019 – The Spring Independent School District has invited qualified high school seniors to participate in its annual Smart Kid Cool Car giveaway drawing. The event will begin at 1 p.m. Sunday, May 19 at Honda of Spring, and one lucky student will walk away with a brand new Honda HR-V.
The program will begin promptly at 1 p.m. and will include brief remarks from Spring ISD Superintendent Dr. Rodney E. Watson and Honda of Spring General Manager Jason Jackson before they draw the name of one student to win the new vehicle.
“This is a great way to celebrate and recognize our high-achieving students,” said Spring ISD Superintendent Rodney E. Watson. “Qualifying for this drawing isn’t easy and is a testament to a lot of hard work and commitment.”
The Smart Kid Cool Car program was created in 2016 in conjunction with Honda of Spring as a way to recognize Spring ISD students who are motivated academically and also active in service to the community, as demonstrated by maintaining a cumulative 2.5 GPA; passing all state-required End of Course exams; maintaining a 95 percent attendance rate during the year; completing 25 hours of volunteer service in the Spring community; having no out-of-school discipline infractions; and completing the required postsecondary planning assignments.
Seniors from five participating high schools – Carl Wunsche Sr. High School, Dekaney High School, Spring Early College Academy, Spring High School and Westfield High School were all eligible to earn an entry into the drawing.
“We are striving every year to see more and more students qualify for their chance to win a brand new car,” Watson said. “We are grateful to Honda of Spring for partnering with us to make Smart Kid Cool Car a great way to encourage our seniors to do their best.”
