Sarah Ward, 14, of Bremerton, accepts a handshake and a set of keys to her “new” 1998 Honda Civic with 34,000 original miles on it from West Hills Honda General Manager Robert Colon at Bremerton High School June 10.
Ward, a freshman at the school, was randomly selected as winner of the vehicle, which has a standard transmission, CD player, new wheels and new tires, and window tinting. “It’s pretty crazy I got a car,” Ward said. 500-600 students were in the running to win the vehicle, Colon said.
Over the last several years, West Hills Honda has donated a pre-owned car to a student at Bremerton High School. The teachers submit potential winners based off of attendance, academics and overall go-getters. Hundreds of students attended the event.
