|Diehl's Ford recently sponsored the Drive One 4 Ur School Event at their Ford dealership in Grantsville. Nine clubs/organizations from within Northern High School participated in the day's events, which resulted in $20.00 being donated to NHS for each test drive that was taken on that day. Pictured in the photo is Greg Diehl, owner of Diehls' Ford, presenting a check for $2,560.00 to Gary Reichenbecher, NHS Principal. NHS and Diehl's Ford would like to thank everyone that helped to make this event a success. A special thank you to Diehl's Ford for being our local sponsor of the Drive One Event. Since Diehl's Ford began sponsoring the Drive One 4 Ur School Program, they have raised nearly $69,000.00 for the school.|
