McLarty Daniel Automotive is proud to present the 2nd Annual Attendance Is The Key Car Giveaway!

McLarty Daniel Automotive is in their 2nd year of acknowledging area high school students’ attendance achievements with the McLarty Daniel “ATTENDANCE IS THE KEY” car giveaway.  There will be four participating schools Bentonville, Bentonville West, Rogers and Rogers Heritage.   “I think it is really generous for McLarty Daniel to donate the car for that (student attendance incentive). It’s cool!” Jaydra Smith, 10th grade BWHS.

Friday a pep rally was held to kick off the program at Rogers Heritage.      "The Rogers Community is very supportive of the schools.  McLarty Daniel is but one example and did they ever step up their support.  They know that being present at school (and on the job) is so very important, and their giving away a car to a student with perfect attendance is one way to encourage our students.  Thank you McLarty Daniel,” Karen Steen, Principal, Heritage High School.

How do students win?  There will be ten lucky students at each school (Bentonville, Bentonville West, Rogers and Rogers Heritage) drawn from qualifying attendance entries.  They will choose a key in the order they are drawn and one lucky student at each school will have the key that starts a car.  Good luck!
