Chillicothe High School Student Wins Car in Anti-Drug Program

A Chillicothe High School student won a new car through his involvement in an anti-drug and anti-alcohol program on Tuesday night.

Tanner Sever, a senior at CHS, was announced the winner of the Kia, donated by Herrnstein Auto Group, during the 6th Annual Keys to Success (K2S) Live Event.

To be eligible to win the car, junior and senior K2S students at CHS had to test drug free, pass their classes, and be good citizens, according to K2S Marketing Director Debbie Bettendorf.

Bettendorf said that no student is ever kicked out of the program; instead, "we work with them to improve".

Additionally, the K2S program gave away 173 prizes totaling $12,500 to K2S students in grades 9-12, and a combination of 6 scholarships were awarded via Dave Strickland - State Farm, Gerber Insurance, and the Chillicothe Education Foundation.

"Thank you to each of you students for continuing to commit to a drug-free lifestyle when faced with some of the craziest few months some of us will ever see," said Aubrey Herrnstein, with Herrnstein Auto Group. "We see you, and we're here for you."

The Chillicothe City School District's K2S program was founded in 2015 by distinguished alum Gary Von Kennel.
