Benson High School wins education money from State Farm
Thanks to thousands of safe driver commitments made in support of Benson High School, the Celebrate My Drive program awarded $25,000 to the school.
Benson's school was in the top 100 in the nation-wide program and in the top 50 in the small schools division.
In addition to collecting the commitments to drive safely, the program recognizes the important occasion of teens learning to drive.
According to a State Farm press release, car crashes are the number one killer of teens, the first year of being on the road as the most dangerous.
Local State Farm owners Cindy (pictured) and Mark Frank were happy to help facilitate the winning check ceremony which happened Friday morning at the school.
