What Did You Do This Summer?

Tez Rogers began his summer by winning a new car!

Actually, the recent Mt. Pleasant High School graduate earned it through Maury County’s Strive to Drive contest.  “I couldn’t even think when they called my name,” Rogers told The Columbia Daily Herald. 

Strive to Drive is an ongoing academic initiative for Maury County, which encourages good grades and attendance for high school seniors from public and private schools.  Columbia Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Fiat presented Rogers with a new 2016 Dodge Dart, paid for by the dealership, taxes and all.  Rogers credits JTG specialist Lawrence Bull for his classroom success.

“He’s one the best teachers I’ve ever had.”  Tez added, “I learned quite a bit about filling out college applications and job applications.”  Rogers recently left his job at Cee Bee Grocery in Mt. Pleasant and now works at the Juvenile Detention Center in Columbia.  He plans to enroll at Martin Methodist College, focusing on a career in Criminal Justice.

And when Rogers does roll onto campus, he’ll do it in style.
