Henderson Ford and Webster Marching Band Boosters Inc. announced the Webster Schroeder High School’s first car winner, senior Peyton Roemer.
Roemer broke the three-year winning streak held by Webster Thomas seniors. A $500 check was given to Emillie Medina, of Webster Thomas High School, and a $250 check was awarded to Jamie Easley, from Webster Schroeder.
The 2018 Henderson Ford Focus winner Roemer completed three Advanced Placement courses during his high school career with an overall GPA of around 90. Roemer’s course of study focused on seven courses in the area of technology and Project Lead the Way, a science, technology, engineering and mathematics curriculum. The Webster Schroeder graduate has also served as project manager on the SparX robotics team and has worked as a volunteer camp counselor, teaching design and STEM concepts to elementary students.
There were nine ways for Webster Thomas and Webster Schroeder seniors to enter the 2018 Henderson Ford and Webster Marching Band Boosters Inc. car and cash prize giveaways: one entry per quarter for zero unexcused absences and five or fewer tardies, 3 entries; one entry per quarter for passing grades, three entries; one entry per school year for club/sport participation, one entry; teacher recommendation, one entry; parent recommendation, one entry.
The three senior-winning entries that were drawn involved: club/sport participation, a passing quarter report card and no unexcused absences or five or less tardies for the marking period.
“We love to see the excitement every year on these young adults’ faces,” said Henderson Ford General Manager Aki Henderson. “We hope that this program and our initiatives with the Webster Marching Band Boosters, Inc. has encouraged students to strive for success during their senior years.
