Dooley and nearly 20 classmates were randomly selected to participate in the event. The students names were drawn randomly from a large hopper filled with tickets they earned for academic achievements and performances. The better the student performed, the more chances they have to win the car. At today’s event, there were more than 20,000 tickets in the hopper. Carroll Senior High School Principal Shawn Duhon was pleased that striving for excellence in school gave his students something exciting to win like a new car from Grubbs Infiniti or one of 19 new computers donated by Dell Computers.
The Drive2Excellence event was held on the Carroll High School track with members of the Dragon Band. Carroll ISD administrators and representatives from GrubbsInfiniti including owner and General Manager George Grubbs III and the current Miss Texas emceed the event.
