LARNED — Ralph Baird Motors of Larned and the Larned High School will team up for their 4th Drive 4 UR School from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at Ralph Baird Motors, K-156.
Baird Motors and Ford Motor Company will donate $20 to the Larned student council for every family member who test drives a vehicle. Larned’s National Honor Society is helping with the project. The funds will be donated for Larned High School StuCo projects.
“It will allow us to send more students to StuCo events during the summer. They learn a lot from cooperative learning events,” said Jacob Tapia, Larned High teacher. “This will help us make our high school events better.”
StuCo leaders Roxanne Foster and Reagan Burris helped with Thursday’s presentation during the Chamber of Commerce weekly coffee. Foster said local businesses have donated coupons and incentives for the driving promotion.
The fundraiser can generate up to $8,000 for Larned High. Participants must be 18 years old and have a valid drivers’ license to take part. Only one driver per-household will be eligible. There will be a drawing for a television and concessions will be available.
