Students Get Bikes For Perfect Attendance

Christmas came early for some East Texas students Monday morning.   Academy donated 25 bikes and helmets to children with "perfect attendance" at Bramlette Elementary in Longview. More than 200 students out of the nearly 500 had perfect attendance this year so the school had to put all the names in a hat to draw two from each grade.

"That makes you glad, because they didn't have to do it. I want to thank them for providing us with the bicycles," says Jordan Whitaker, a Bramlette fifth grader.

"It's great to hear their stories because some of them will tell you about how their brother won it the year before or sister won it. One kid told me he was giving it to his brother because they didn't have anything for Christmas," says Angela Fielden, Manager of Academy.

This is the fifth year Academy has donated the bikes to students in Longview.
