Majestic Star Casino Sponsors School Incentive Program Students ill focus on Academics, Attendance and Community Service

Buffington Harbor, Ind., 12/6/01  -  Majestic Star Casino and the Gary Accord Communities in Schools are collaborating on the 2nd annual Majestic Star Student Program.

The program is designed to help teachers motivate Gary's fifth grade students and ninth graders toward progressive achievement. The students participate by setting academic, attendance and community service goals, and then striving to meet them. The program will run from November 2001 to May 2002.

Six Gary elementary schools Norton, Aetna, Locke, Drew, Riley, Duncan and one high school, Lew Wallace's freshman academy, have been selected to participate in the program.

During the end of the 2000-2001 school year, three fifth grade students from Locke school won prizes including: a $1,000 savings bond, a new Gateway computer and printer, and the grand prize of an all-expense paid trip to Disney World in Orlando, Florida for the student, parent and teacher.

Majestic Star Casino continues to provide volunteerism, sponsorship, and community involvement.
