Once again Andy Shaw Ford of Sylva has been able to bring Ford Motor Company’s “Drive One 4UR School” Program to Jackson County.

Members of the Smoky Mountain High School football team and cheerleading squad along with Principal Jay Grissom; Andy Shaw Ford General Manager, Larry Hinton; and dealership staff members gather around a newly designed 2012 Ford Focus

On October 7 the event will be held at Smoky Mountain High School from 8 AM to 6 PM. This year the potential for increased funding is significantly higher than years past. The basic formula will still be used: a $20 donation will be made by Andy Shaw Ford and Ford Motor Company for each of the first 300 test drives of a new Ford vehicle. However, if 200 of those same drivers take an additional test drive in the newly redesigned 2012 Focus an additional $2000 will be donated. During that same time frame students will be producing a video which features the new Focus and if chosen as a winner, the School can win an additional $7000 for a total of $15,000. “I am really excited about this year’s program and the increased funding,” said Larry Hinton, General Manager of Andy Shaw Ford. “It’s a great way for our High School to get some desperately needed money,” he added. Principal Jay Grissom echoed Hinton’s remarks when he said, “We can certainly put the money, all $15,000 of it, to good use.”

All community members are encouraged to come out on the 7th and Drive One 4 “Their” School.
