Bradwell Institute senior Robert Motley drove a brand-new Chevy Cobalt to his high school graduation yesterday — and it was flawless.
Area high school seniors with perfect attendance for the year had a chance to win keys to a new car through General’s Motors’ national Drive for Perfection program,   
Motley said he wouldn’t have been eligible for the drawing to begin with if it weren’t for a little motivation.
“It’s called parents,” Motley said. “Some days I know I wouldn’t have gone to school but [my] parents forced me to.”
“He hasn’t even hit his 18th birthday yet and he’s already got a brand-new car,” said NeSmith general manager Mike Reed.  
Since he isn’t of legal signing age, Motley’s mother signed for the car.
“The car will be registered in my name, but it is definitely his car,” Debra Motley said.
Robert is going to Savannah State University this fall.
