LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Christmas came early for 30 Burley Primary students on Friday.
The bikes were donated by Academy Sports at Outdoors as a community outreach. Every student that had perfect attendance was entered into a drawing. Students who also had high scores on the school's classroom dojo app also had their name entered.
"We are blessed to be part of a program that awards students for perfect attendance and doing well in school," Academy's Jackson Kotz said. "It's great to support the kids and promote a healthy lifestyle. It's just the joy in their eyes that's important to us. I'm a father of two as well, so I get to see the joy come out in them."
