Middle College High Senior Wins a New Car!

SANTA ANA, CA –  Cathy Martinez, a senior from Middle College High School, is the lucky winner of a 2011 Chevy Cruze courtesy of Guaranty Chevrolet in Santa Ana. Martinez’s name was drawn from among more than 430 eligible students in the year-long perfect attendance incentive contest for high school students. The winning name was drawn on Saturday, June 11 at the Guaranty Chevrolet dealership amid a crowd of school officials, principals, educators, parents, students and dealership personnel.

Martinez, who this year earned a concurrent AA degree from Santa Ana College along with her high school diploma, will head off to UC Riverside in the fall. She is the second student from Middle College High to win the grand prize in the contest. This year, Guaranty Chevrolet upgraded the giveaway from an Aveo to a Cruze, a model which debuted this year. The car is valued at $20,000 and will be Martinez’s primary mode of transportation to UC Riverside.

Guaranty Chevrolet has donated a brand new car to Santa Ana Unified School District for the fifth consecutive year as an incentive to keep high school students’ attendance on track. Since the program’s inception, perfect attendance has incrementally increased every year. The program encourages students to attend school on time, every day for every period.
