ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – How would you like to get a new car for perfect attendance?
That was the reward for two New Mexico high school seniors.
Reliable Chevrolet and Reliable Nissan gave away two cars to the students for completing the semester with perfect attendance. Seniors had to attend a Rio Rancho public school and register with the dealership in order to win. Only 17 qualified.
Elijah Brown from Rio Rancho High School and Emily Kaldveer from Cleveland High School were the lucky winners.
“I was not expecting to win,” said Elijah Brown.
“It’s so exciting that my hard work actually paid off for something,” Emily Kaldveer said.
The dealership says it hopes this encourages students to stay in school.
