Pass and Go Event Under New Sponsorship,

More Car Choices for Winning AP Student

(July 24, 2012) The Fourth Annual Pass and Go event, a reward celebration for Clarksville-Montgomery County School System Advanced Placement students who score a 3, 4 or 5 on their exam, will be this Saturday at Wyatt Johnson, the event sponsor.

Katherine Johnson Cannata, Dealer Principal for Wyatt Johnson, is introducing a new dimension to the event. She is giving the overall winning student his or her choice of three cars: a Toyota Yaris, a Mazda 2 or a Hyundai Accent.

“We want to recognize those students for working very hard by taking Advanced Placement classes,” says Mr. Michael Harris, Director of Schools. This year, 359 students passed a record-breaking 504 AP exams with a score of 3, 4 or 5. In all, 1,057 exams were attempted. Students could take multiple AP courses and exams.

Premier Medical also has partnered with CMCSS and Wyatt Johnson in the Pass & Go event. They are giving away 14 laptop computers and eight iPods. When students register for the event they will also receive a jump drive. After they receive the jump drive they will be able to plug the jump drive into one of the computers. If the jump drive is a winner, the student will take home one of the 14 computers. Premier Medical will also be giving away other door prizes and William Beach Oil will be drawing for $25 gas cards. Domino’s Pizza will be providing food for the students attending and will give away door prizes as well.

Registration for the Wyatt Johnson Pass & Go event will begin at 4 p.m. and end at 5 p.m. on Saturday, July 28.

After the registration is complete students will line up in order of their number to draw their key(s) from a jar. Included within the total number of keys will be twelve keys, which will open the car door and qualify the key holder as a finalist to draw from another jar of twelve keys, one of which will start the car and designate the winner of the Wyatt Johnson Pass and Go car.

“I am excited to be a part of this program,” says Mrs. Cannata. “It’s important to think outside the box and hopefully this will create a bigger incentive for students to enroll in AP classes.”
