Community Engagement & Philanthropy
This year two local businesses, Toyota of Tampa Bay and Suncoast Credit Union, join Hillsborough County Public Schools (HCPS) to recognize five seniors who have achieved 13 years of perfect attendance.
Toyota of Tampa Bay will host a special event called A Perfect Car for Perfect Attendance to honor seniors with at least one year of perfect attendance while in high school. Toyota of Tampa Bay will give away one free car to one lucky senior. At the May 15 Board meeting, each of the 1,769 eligible seniors who have earned at least one year of perfect attendance in high school will be entered into a random drawing. The random drawing will select 10 eligible seniors for a final drawing on June 5. Each student graduating this year with perfect attendance for all 13 years will automatically enter the final drawing.
