Principal Jay Grissom and members of the Smoky Mountain High School student body accepted a check for nearly $8,000 for the Sept. 21 Drive 4UR School event.
Presenting the check are Larry Hinton, General Manager of Andy Shaw Ford and Erica Bullock, Office Manager. The Drive 4UR School event saw nearly 300 test drives of Ford vehicles by members of the community.
For each test drive a $20 donation was made by Andy Shaw Ford and Ford Motor Company. If an additional drive was taken in the 2013 Escape an additional $10 was donated.
“This year’s program was really exciting.” said Hinton “Enough community supporters came out for test drives to put us over $33,000 that we have brought to our Jackson County high schools,” he added. “It’s a great way for our high school to get some desperately needed money,” said Grissom. “We so appreciate Andy Shaw Ford and especially all of the parents, teachers, and community supporters who came out.”
