The San Marcos Police Department in conjunction with Wal-Mart and the San Marcos Independent School District rewarded students with perfect attendance by giving them a new bicycle.
The program provided five free bicycles to students today at Crockett Elementary School. The winners were selected by a random drawing.
Cynthia Lopez, Wal-Mart Assistant manager said, “We got involved in this for the last two years through our school adoption programs.”
San Marcos Police Officer Association President Danny Arredondo added, “We decided to do something positive with the kids, we decided to reward the kids bikes for their perfect attendance.”
San Marcos’ finest were also represented by officers Emilio Gonzales and Bob Klett. The officers and Wal-Mart representatives posed for pictures and congratulated the kids on being selected to receive a new bike.
The school officers also partnered with Wal-Mart on several other projects in San Marcos.
