Keys to Success
The Keys to Success program is an incentive-based, educational improvement
program co-sponsored by Ken Garff Automotive Group and Chase Bank. The
goals of the program are to recognize and reward high school students who
improve their educational performance. Students have the chance to qualify for
key cards that entitle them to incentive awards from several sponsors. There are
lots of different ways students can receive a key card during the school year. If
you are unsure ask your teacher or ask Julie Mattson in the counseling center.
We will have a list of criteria for earning key cards posted on the Bonneville
website as well.
Once you receive your reward card turn it into Julie Mattson in the counseling
center to receive your actual key card that you will use to get on line and win
prizes and be entered in to the drawing for the car at the end of the year. The
recipient of a key card can access the keys to success website at
kengarffkeys.com and choose from a myriad of tickets or vouchers for
participation in any number of events. These activities include everything from
restaurants and fast food chains to concert and sporting venues, theatres,
museums, and entertainment parks. If you don’t turn in your reward card to Julie
Mattson then you are not going to be in the drawing for the car or be able to
claim your prizes. Upon receiving your key card you have 30 days to validate it.
The best part of the program happens at the end of the school year. This is
where the free car comes in! During one of the final assemblies 50 students will
be randomly selected from previous key card winners to draw a key. One lucky
key will start a vehicle valued at approximately $5,000. That’s right, a Bonneville
High School student will win a real car – just ask Shauna Merrill, winner of last
Here’s how students can win key cards during the 2008-2009 school year….
LAKER OF THE MONTH
All students who are honored at the Laker of the Month luncheons will receive a reward
card. Students need to report to Julie Mattson in the Counseling Center during the week
after their Laker of the Month luncheon in order to receive their key card.
SEPTEMBER: RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS
Teachers, Administrators or anyone on Bonneville’s Staff can give students a reward
card when they see students doing random acts of kindness. That’s right….those little
things that too often get overlooked. So make sure if you see a student doing the right
thing that you reward them by giving them a keys to success reward card.

Teachers, Administrators or anyone on Bonneville’s Staff will do a contract with one or

However, the contract needs to be completed by October 30th (end of 1st term). This will

Lakers are great because they study hard, respect others, and make Bonneville High
School a better place. The Keys to Success program is intended to reward you (the
students) for doing the right things. Be an example, work hard, and represent what
makes Bonneville High School the best school around and maybe you will be this year’s

Students can only receive three key cards per year.
