Program recognizes students for leadership and volunteerism
With 2016 being a Leap Year, Chevrolet encouraged everyone to make the most of having an extra 24 hours by fulfilling random acts of kindness for others. The National Corvette Museum, a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit and the NCM Motorsports Park in Bowling Green, Kentucky participated in #DayItForward by soliciting the nominations of Warren County school children who exemplified leadership qualities and participated in volunteer work for a special Corvette experience.
“The idea was to identify and recognize kids who go above and beyond in the community,” said Katie Frassinelli, Marketing and Communications Manager with the Museum. “We thought the #DayItForward initiative was the perfect opportunity to show our appreciation to young people for their acts of kindness.”
Nominations were accepted on the NCM Motorsports Park website and six children were selected for the recognition.
The students receiving the award are: Tristan Jordan, a Kindergartner at Bristow Elementary; Peyton Harmon, a 6th grade student at Jody Richards Elementary; Sabbath Hoehn, a 5th grade student at T.C. Cherry Elementary; Gabbie Robles, a 2nd grade student at T.C. Cherry Elementary; Casey Schallert, a 6th grade student at Bowling Green Junior High; and Olivia Steelman, a 6th grade student at Plano Elementary.
Each student will receive a Corvette experience including a ride around the NCM Motorsports Park, complimentary admission for them and their immediate family to the National Corvette Museum, certificate for ice cream from the Corvette Café and a free t-shirt of their choice from the Corvette Store.
“Reading through the nominations really gave us a warm fuzzy feeling. These kids are doing some really exceptional things in their community. It makes us proud to be able to help recognize them for their efforts,” said Frassinelli.
