Rosa Parks Students are 'Bikes for Kids' Recipients
Every month, NBC San Diego and the Salvation Army give away a bicycle to a deserving elementary school student.
In May's giveaway at Rosa Parks Elementary School, 10 students were the lucky recipients.
The extra-special giveaway was in honor of the 59th National Salvation Army Week, which was celebrated the week of May 14. Major Peacock and Marie Romo from the Salvation Army joined NBC San Diego reporter Whitney Southwick on May 15 to make the surprise presentation to students in grades 1-5.
Receiving the bikes were Brandon Diaz Fregoso, May Nguyen, Bryant Orantes, Sole Lapensee, Hai Lam, Catalina Nava, Abdirahman Abdi, Magali Perez, Andrew Le and Kayli Quezada. Students also received a free entry pass to the Salvation Army Kroc Center.
"Teachers nominated deserving students for various reasons, including perfect attendance, improvement in academics and great humanatarian efforts," said principal Carolanne Bugey.
