Beasley Media Group’s “Driven 2 Excel” program is a community enhancement campaign designed to reward high school seniors in Cumberland County who achieve high levels of academic achievement and exemplary attendance records throughout the 2016 – 2017 school year. In conjunction with the Cumberland County School system and other community partners, Beasley Media Group has joined with Fayetteville Kia and Fort Bragg Federal Credit Union to reward qualifying students with fantastic incentives for scholastic performance.
To qualify for the program, a student must have no more than five absences during the school year and achieve a weighted, cumulative G.P.A. of 3.2 or higher during the qualification periods. Qualifying students will be invited to attend an exclusive, invitation-only celebration where the giveaways will be awarded. The Grand Prize of a 2016 Kia Soul from Fayetteville Kia will be given away at the end of the 2016 – 2017 school year during the event finale. Additionally, Fort Bragg Federal Credit Union will award scholarships of $3,000 and $2,000 to the first and second runners-up.
Eligibility of the qualifying students will be determined through the high school guidance counselors and social workers over two reporting periods. At the end of the first semester, high school guidance counselors will send a notice of eligibility home with qualifying students acknowledging their achievement. A similar notice will be sent home with the students that remain eligible from the start of the second semester through the end of the 2016 – 2017 school year.
Students do not need to sign up for the program. Qualifying students are automatically invited to participate as long as they achieve the minimum performance standards.
Beasley Media Group, in conjunction with the Cumberland County School system, Fayetteville Kia, Fort Bragg Federal Credit Union, and other community partners will host an invitation-only event for the qualifying students and their parent/guardian. Beasley Media Group will supply entertainment from its FM radio stations and recognize the students’ academic achievements. Prize winners, who will be determined by random drawing from qualified students that are in attendance at the event, can win items such as tablet computers, movie tickets, t-Shirts, concert tickets, various “free food” vouchers, college scholarships from Fort Bragg Federal Credit Union or even a 2016 Kia Soul from Fayetteville Kia. Students AND parents/guardians MUST be present at the final event to win the car.
