High School P.R.I.D.E Card Discount

Motivation Nation is sponsoring a new project that gives a discount at local businesses to exemplary students. To receive the discount the student must have a PRIDE card and be able to show it to the business and the student must be present for a family to receive the discount.

What does it mean to have a PRIDE card?

P.R.I.D.E. stands for Personal Responsibility In Daily Effort. P.R.I.D.E. cards are available to all exemplary high school students who have a minimum GPA of 3.0, as well as good attendance and behavior. Freshmen are able to earn theirs after first semester. Each semester a student is issued a new card, if he/she qualifies. P.R.I.D.E. cards also admit students to regular season home games for free.

We would like the thank the following Businesses for their participation in the PRIDE Card Program. They have offered the following discounts for students with PRIDE cards.
