Each year, CMCSS sophomore, junior, and senior students who have passed their AP exams with a 3, 4, or 5 are invited to participate in Pass & Go.
Students receive numbered tickets and are eligible for prizes ranging from gas cards to a brand new car. Rowan Carey stood in stunned silence after learning he won a new car at the 13th annual Wyatt Johnson Automotive Pass and Go event. Carey, a Northeast High School junior, was speechless after his key started the Hyundai Accent on Sat., Aug. 7. “I’m just shocked. I didn’t expect anything,” he said. There were over 600 CMCSS high school students who qualified for the event, hosted by the Clarksville-Montgomery County Education Foundation. Carey was randomly selected as the ultimate winner.“It is very important for this company to give back to education,” said Senator Bill Powers. Powers has been actively involved since the creation of the event 13 years ago. He has been a strong community advocate ever since. “I appreciate everybody and their hard work.” Over 25 students walked away from the day with various prizes, including gift cards to Domino’s Pizza, gas cards from Beach Oil, a Google Chromebook, an iPad, and Apple AirPods.
