KSST Radio in Sulphur Springs, TX donated tickets to nine Texas Rangers‘ home games. Douglas Intermediate School will use the tickets to encourage student perfect attendance. As part of the Campus Improvement Program, Principal Holly Folmar hopes each student will attend each day and each hour of the day. “We keep track of each student, and each and every hour they attend our school.” said Folmar. A student that comes to school, then leaves even 30 minutes early, will not have perfect attendance.
KSST donated enough tickets for each of the 17 classes to give one student four tickets in each class. Station owner Chad Young said, “We wanted to give enough tickets in each class so that the student could take friends and family to the game as well.”
