At a recent meeting in March, Kiwanis members welcomed Carroll ISD staff for a special presentation. Diagnostician Robin Kuntz and Transition Coordinator Melinda Mason explained to the group about the C-STAR program and it’s needs. Local car dealership, Q Automotive Group donated a loaner vehicle to CISD’s Transition Services team for use in transportion C-STAR students.
“Speaking on behalf of the Q [Automotive Group], we have never been involved with a more worthwhile cause than the C -STAR program and we are excited to play a small role in its success,” said Q Special Markets Manager, Al Van Scotter. “The entire CISD team from the top down deserves a big round of applause. I will continue to promote your programs whenever & wherever I can.”
In addition, Southlake Kiwanis has donated $5,000 to the program to assist with the actual purchase of a vehicle. Kiwanis members hope to raise more money for the C-STAR program at the fun run in May.
