June 12, 2012

Graduating Culver Comm. High School senior Joe Krsek (pictured here, second from left) says he didn't expect to win this gently used vehicle from County Auto Center in Plymouth, even though he had plenty of A's on his report card. Every A submitted earned seniors from Plymouth, Triton, Culver, Argos, and Bremen High Schools an entry in a drawing for a vehicle, according to Joe Martin, Jr. (far left) of County Auto, who noted about $10,000 was budgeted towards the car (whose taxes Country Auto also paid).
