KALISPELL- One lucky student with perfect school attendance won a memorable graduation gift: a free car.
Kalispell Motor Company wanted to give students with perfect attendance quite the reward: A 2017 Ford Fiesta.
“One of our values is being a good community citizen so this is one of those things that go hand in hand with that,” said General Manager of Kalispell Volskwagen, Justin Rody.
An impressive 63 students in the Flathead Valley have perfect attendance records, but there could only be one winner.
Jazminn Malians, a recent 2019 graduate from Stillwater Christian, says she was shocked to hear her name called.
“My eyes were almost popping out, it was unbelievable,” Malians said. “The perfect attendance has definitely paid off. I’ve worked so hard going to school sick and well, it was just unbelievable. I thought I wasn’t going to make it but thankfully I did."
She wants to thank Kalispell Volkswagen, Kalispell Toyota, and Kalispell Ford for giving her the opportunity she wouldn’t have had otherwise.
