Sames Auto Group presents scholarships to four LISD graduates – Laredo Morning Times



The Sames Auto Group presented scholarships to four Laredo ISD students with perfect attendance. The scholarships are part of the Drive Sames for Education Perfect Attendance incentive program.

The winners are all graduates of LISD’s Class of 2020. Scholarship recipients include Martin’s Jonathan Cortez, Nixon’s Brianna Hernandez, Cigarroa’s Juan Jose Mendoza and Hector J. Garcia Early College’s Ignacio Salazar.

“These outstanding pupils made daily student attendance a priority,” LISD Assistant Superintendent for Compliance and School Safety Oscar Perez said. “With the support of their parents, the four students were in class everyday regardless of how they felt, the weather or other circumstances. Their efforts are applauded and rewarded with general scholarships for their higher education needs. We are very grateful to Sames Auto Group for partnering with LISD in promoting perfect attendance. We want our students to be in class every day learning and growing to become tomorrow’s leaders.”



The $1,500 scholarships were presented on Tuesday by Sames General Manager Thomas Pina and Sames Marketing Director Karla Gonzalez.


“The Sames Auto Group understands that daily student attendance directly correlates to academic achievement,” Pina said. “Perfect attendance prepares students for college and job commitments. The entire community benefits when kids are in class everyday. This is why we are proud to support the Drive Sames for Education program.”
