Greensburg Daily News

Greensburg — GREENSBURG – Don Meyer Ford, South Decatur High School and members of the community raised $3,440 for the South Decatur Football Team at a test-drive event, as part of Ford Motor Company’s Drive 4 UR School program.

About 170 Greesburg-area residents test drove a Ford vehicle Aug. 2 at the school. For each test drive, Don Meyer Ford donated $20 to the high school athletic program.

Since the program’s inception in 2007, Drive 4 Ur School has generated more than $16 million for high schools nationwide. The money raised has helped ensure that extracurricular activities like sports and music programs continue in local communities, despite budgetary constraints and funding cuts.

Jerry Sebo, sales manager at Don Meyer Ford, said this was the local dealership’s first time to participate in Drive 4 UR School. He said plans are being made to hold another one each semester, with other schools to benefit.

The dealership also supports the community by offering three scholarships, one for each of the three local high schools.

For more information about the scholarships, call Sebo at 663-7621.
