SADDLEBACK HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT WINS PERFECT ATTENDANCE CAR GIVEAWAY
Jose Perez of Saddleback High School has won a new car in the 2017 Perfect Attendance Car Giveaway courtesy of Bruce Hamlin, owner of Guaranty Chevrolet in Santa Ana. Every year, Hamlin hosts a celebration in the Guaranty Chevrolet showroom for SAUSD high school students with perfect attendance for the year; this year 733 students were eligible.
"The main reason we do this is to help the community," said Hamlin. "The more students that attend classes daily, the more educated the student becomes. Those are the people that become good citizens and therefore help the community."
The Santa Ana Unified School District promotes the importance of attending school each and every day to students and parents throughout the year. The Perfect Attendance Car Giveaway is one of the district's innovative strategies to reduce absenteeism.
