Senior wins Sober Grad car
June 10, 2013 — Lassen High School senior Austin Whiting collects the keys to an immaculate 4-wheel drive 2003 Ford Explorer from Wheels West owner Jason Rieger. Whiting won the car as part of the Sober Graduation celebration held at the Lassen County Fairgrounds just after sunrise Saturday, June 8.
An estimated 300 graduating seniors from across the county and their friends attended the event graduation night. None of the seniors went home empty handed because prior to the drawing for the car — the big giveaway of the night — every senior won a prize with items donated by local businesses and individuals. Whiting said he was surprised he won the car because he never wins anything. “I’m really excited and happy Wheels West donated the car. That was great.”
