TOPEKA, Kan. (April 5, 2018) -- Recently, several SCCA® members were named Circle of Excellence award winners for their work with the Tire Rack Street Survival (TRSS) program.
Jim Wiles, of the Cincinnati Region, received an award for executing his very successful, first TRSS school. Linda Duncan, of the Kansas Region, was honored for her tireless volunteer work and being a past program coordinator who truly champions the cause. Sam Centellas, of the South Bend Region, was named Hero of the Year. He not only services SCCA Schools, but also works with Tire Rack in coordinating TRSS Schools and is a TRSS presenter at the SCCA National Convention.
Wiles and Duncan will receive certificates naming them members of the Tire Rack Street Survival Circle of Excellence, as well as jackets embroidered with the “C of E” patch. Centellas will receive a $3,500 garage makeover.
The Tire Rack Street Survival® Program is a full day defensive driving class targeted for teens and young adults from 16 to 21 years of age. The program consists of classroom and driving exercises. One of the biggest keys to the program is the students drive their own cars allowing them to get “hands-on” experience in the cars they will be driving every day.
