Public Education Foundation and Seiji Limousine Motivate Students to Get “On the Winning Road”

December 5, 2009 by  

The Public Education Foundation and Seiji Limousine have launched a new program called “On the Winning Road” at five Clark County School District middle schools. The incentive program recognizes and rewards seventh and eighth graders who have dramatically improved their grades, behavior, attendance or who have overcome a challenge.

“On the Winning Road” is designed to motivate at-risk students and turnaround their academics or behavior by rewarding one student at each participating school with a five-hour after-school adventure, including a limousine ride down Las Vegas Boulevard, a visit to GameWorks, a ride on The Roller Coaster at New York-New York Hotel & Casino and a meal. The selected student receives $100 in spending money from Seiji Limousine and can bring up to six friends, who receive $20 each. An adult will chaperone the trip.

President of Seiji Limousines, Kellie McKinley, explains, “Seiji Limousines realizes that motivation and recognition can be important in achieving goals, and we are happy to be able to be a part of this program. Although only five students will be specially recognized, we feel that all students should consider themselves winners when they challenge themselves to be better students, personally and academically. We hope that they will be proud of their individual accomplishments and keep focused on the winning road. They are our future.”

Dr. William H. “Bob” Bailey, J. Harold Brinley, John C. Fremont, Roy W. Martin and Mario C. & JoAnne Monaco Middle Schools are participating this year. Each principal determines the criteria for selecting the winning student. The five trips are taking place in November and early December.

Innovative public-private partnerships, like this one, are helping to make a difference for our children,” said Judi Steele, president of The Public Education Foundation. “When the president of Seiji Limousine approached us with this idea, we were very excited by the possibilities, and we hope this program inspires students to improve their schoolwork and attitudes. This is a wonderful example of how businesses can get involved with our schools.”
