Orleans Parish School Board Graduating Senior with Perfect Attendance wins New 2019 Toyota Yaris IA

NEW ORLEANS – (May 28, 2019) – For the 13th year in a row, the Orleans Parish School Board (OPSB) and Premier Automotive Group awarded a brand-new car, courtesy of Toyota of New Orleans, to a graduating senior with perfect attendance. This year’s car awarded was a 2019 Toyota Yaris IA, which went to Jamal Beaulieu from McMain High School.

“This is an event our seniors with perfect attendance look forward to every year,” said OPSB Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Henderson Lewis, Jr. “This year, 34 seniors did not miss a day of school. The opportunity to compete for this car is a fantastic reward for their commitment.”

The winner was selected via lottery and only students who attended the drawing were eligible to win. Other students with perfect attendance were eligible for monetary donations and swag bags provided by Premier Automotive Group, along with All-Star Electric, Mobile-One Auto Sound and Core Construction.

“This event is very important to me personally. I want to be part of the solution to keep kids in school,” said Troy Duhon, founder and president of Premier Automotive. “During the last 13 years, we have rewarded several hundred outstanding high school seniors with new cars and/or scholarships. Hopefully, we have inspired them to succeed in life.”

ABOUT OPSB: The OPSB currently oversees 78 public schools, including 75 charter schools, three direct-operated schools and a school with two educational programs for students in secure-care facilities. On July 1, all New Orleans public schools were unified under the oversight of the locally-elected Orleans Parish School Board for the first time since Hurricane Katrina. Learn more about Unification here.
