Tulsa, Oklahoma (PRWEB) December 18, 2014
This December, Tulsa Hyundai took part in helping motivate students with the school oriented, non-profit organization, Great Expectations. The program promotes good character in schools by helping teachers use specific strategies and expectations to motivate their students. This nationally known program cultivates a positive, nurturing school environment. Tulsa Hyundai assisted by donating an iPad to the worthy student.
Teachers choose two students every six weeks who demonstrate compassion, patriotism, and responsibility. The students were then recognized at a school assembly, so that every child felt appreciated. From the group of chosen students, one winner was randomly selected to win the iPad.
“We are happy to be able to take part in an organization as important as Great Expectations,” said Phillip Wartley, General Manager of Tulsa Hyundai. “Giving back, especially to a deserving student, is what’s most important.”
Aubrey Darrow, a second grader at Bixby North, was the lucky winner of the iPad. A representative from Tulsa Hyundai went to Bixby North to present the iPad to Darrow, and also got to take a photo with the model student.
“Darrow exemplified charisma in the classroom,” according to Phil Streets, the Principal of Bixby North. "We certainly appreciate Tulsa Hyundai's generosity in providing this reward to those students who epitomize character and leadership in our schools,” said Streets.
Aubrey Darrow’s photo will also be sent out in the PTA newsletter, which goes out to every family electronically each month. Darrow’s reward from Tulsa Hyundai and Great Expectations will hopefully motivate more students to outwardly show good character in the classroom.
