Little Cypress-Mauriceville High School officials have been notified that the campus is a regional winner in the Taco Bell “Graduate for Mas Challenge.” According to an announcement made by Taco Bell, “This fall, over 1,200 high schools across the country competed in round #1 of the “Graduate for Más Challenge.” Deborah Stewart, a counselor for LCM High School said, “Taco Bell has been very generous in providing our students this opportunity to commit to education and earn terrific prizes. Our goal is to have each student make this personal graduation pledge and to follow through to achieve this goal.”

Created in partnership with the Taco Bell Foundation for Teens, the program challenged students to Make the Promise to graduate and use the “Graduate for Más” educational tools and resources to maintain progress toward that Promise. Students stepped up to the challenge and over 140,000 Promises were made during the nine weeks of the first round.”

The Grand prize went to Klein Collins High in Spring, Texas. That campus will receive $5,000 and a DJ dance to celebrate their success. LCM and 29 other schools across the United States will receive $1,000 for leading their region in the pledge to graduate.
