Earlier this month, on Oct. 2, RHS’s afterschool program DRIVE One (Delivering Religion in Vocational Education) was picked by Automation Alley, a business community in southeast Michigan, as the 2015 Outstanding Educational Initiative.

“It’s very hard to win and it has never been done,” DRIVE One instructor Paul Tregembo Jr. said. After being nominated, DRIVE One was chosen by the public with majority votes for the Outstanding Education Initiative Award.

DRIVE One has not been able to celebrate their achievement due to busy preparing for the county-wide school board meeting coming up soon.

As for future DRIVE One competitions, they will be competing at Cobo Hall and the ISCA show, and will also be trying to beat the land speed record, according to Tregembo.
