Excellence in Education enters its ninth year


Daytona Dodge Chrysler Jeep RAM FIAT’s Excellence in Education Challenge is underway for students in Volusia and Flagler schools.

The challenge is presented by Bright House Networks and Daytona Dodge Chrysler Jeep RAM. It’s an incentive-based program open to all high school juniors and seniors who attend Volusia and Flagler County schools, both public and private.

The program, in its ninth year, recognizes good grades, attendance and school-sponsored extracurricular activities by awarding multiple entries based on proficiencies in each of those categories. New this year is an activities component that will recognize participation in programs outside of the classroom that contribute to a more rounded individual.

Winner gets car
At the end of each grading period, a name is drawn from those entered, with the winning entry awarded a new laptop. At the end of the 2016-2017 school year, a name will be drawn from each school from all entries submitted throughout the year. These selected students will attend an end of the year reception on June 1, 2017 at LPGA International, with one lucky winner driving away in a new car.

Last year’s grand-prize winner was Bianca Santos of University High School.

The program is the brainchild of Daytona Dodge Chrysler Jeep RAM owner Randy Dye.

“We are delighted to be able to reward some of the future leaders of our community. We continue to be impressed by the character and dedication of these young people and hope that, in some small way, this program will encourage other students to excel,” Dye said.
