Timbrook Automotive Supporting Local Education

May 17th, 2016 by WCBC Radio

Timbrook Automotive is supporting education in Allegany County this May by giving away a 2008 Chevy Cobalt to one lucky graduating senior from participating schools. Based on GPA, eligible students from Allegany, Fort Hill, Mountain Ridge, the Career Center, Bishop Walsh and Calvary Christian Academy will have an opportunity to be entered into a drawing to win the car.

               “It’s in the nature of a business owner to give back to the community that they do business in,” says Fred Timbrook, Jr., owner of Timbrook Automotive. “Instead of just having a giveaway, I thought, why not reward a young person for working hard in school?” He went on to say, “A free car can change a student’s life. Instead of having a kid take up a job to cover a coupe hundred dollar car payment, maybe now that student can just focus on school.”

               Students with GPAs ranging from 2.0-2.9 will receive one entry in the drawing; students with GPAs ranging from 3.0-3.9 will receive two entries in the drawing; and students with GPA of 4.0 or higher will receive three entries in the drawing. Six students’ names were pulled on May 13th to become eligible finalists for the car: Austin Crotts, Calvary; Caroline Snider, Bishop Walsh; Raven Pifer, Allegany; Christopher Bradshaw, Fort Hill; Donavan Kifer, Career Center; and Liam Troutman, Mountain Ridge.

               While only one lucky student will win the car, these six finalists will receive a $500 scholarship to be used toward college. These students will receive their prize during scheduled commencement or accolades ceremonies. The final drawing for the 2008 Chevy Cobalt will be held on Friday, may 20, 2016.
