MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT)– Hartley Elementary Students were in for a surprise during the schools Christmas assembly.
This year, 30 students get to take home a new bike before the holidays. Students are entered in a drawing for a chance to win a bike and helmet.
The Bibb County Sheriff’s Office along with Academy Sports and Outdoors, donated new bikes and helmets to students with perfect attendance, academic performance, and good behavior.
The Holiday Bike Donation program benefits over 5,000 students across the country.
“Well just for being a great student, these kids that received the bikes, are already a success. This just awards that success and you can see from the reaction from their face. In the crowd they were happy with us and ecstatic to be recognized and to be getting special recognition,” says Sheriff David Davis.
