State Farm Makes Donation to Tyler ISD AVID Program
Representatives from State Farm Insurance presented a donation to the Tyler ISD Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) programs at John Tyler and Robert E. Lee high schools. The $2,500 donation is in appreciation of the AVID students from John Tyler and Robert E. Lee for their participation in the Celebrate My Drive free carwash event that was held in September. Celebrate My Drive is a new initiative that promotes teen driver safety. More than 100 AVID students from both high schools participated in the community service effort. The partnership between the Tyler ISD AVID program and State Farm represents one of the District’s Core Beliefs: Schools and communities have an enormous impact on student’s lives. Thank you to State Farm for supporting our AVID students!
