Courtney Bourdas Henn, Mountasia's Director of Marketing Wins Top Honor from Wm. S. Hart School District
In April 2005, Hart High School District presented select local businesses and individuals awards for their support of the schools and students. Bourdas Henn was awarded the Hart District Super Star Award for spearheading the "Stay Alive on the Drive" program for driving-age students in the District last December 6-10th. Mountasia Fun Center and the City of Santa Clarita, in conjunction with the the Wm. S. Hart Union High School District, the Southern California Auto Club, the SCV Sheriff's Department, the California Highway Patrol, and SCV Safe Rides brought a pilot program, STAY ALIVE ON THE DRIVE, to students of driving age enrolled in Hart District high schools. Students pledged to STAY ALIVE ON THE DRIVE by signing a pledge provided through the ASB. Upon signing the pledge, the student was given a wristband to wear for the week. The wristband, a tool to generate awareness of the need for drivers to be responsible, was also incentive based. Students wearing the wristband were eligible for special free offers and discounts at Mountasia Fun Center, Santa Clarita Lanes, Ice Station Valencia, Fatburger, Maggie Moos Ice Cream & Treatery and Southern California Auto Club. This program was a huge success and we look forward to bringing it to the Hart District and beyond next school year.
