Good grades pay off at Edwards BX

by Brittany Power

According to the Military Child Education Coalition, an estimated 80 percent of military connected children are forced to move between 6-9 times as they complete their K-12 education and, along with geographical moves, comes changes in educational settings and curriculums.

With these unique challenges in mind, the Army & Air Force Exchange Service rewards military students who excel. In fact, schoolchildren who receive a report card with an overall “B” average or better can pick up an array of free and discounted products through the Edwards AFB Exchange’s “You Made the Grade” program.

Now in its 12th year, “You Made the Grade” offers include a free Burger King hamburger kids meal, a magazine of their choice and even a complimentary haircut, to name a few.

Students “making the grade” can also register for a drawing to win a $2,000, $1,500 or $500 Exchange gift card.

“Military students who excel in the classroom despite multiple moves and deploying parents deserve to be recognized,” said the Edwards AFB Exchange’s General Manager. “While good grades are their own reward, this program recognizes the hard work and dedication required of pupils at the head of the class.”

To receive a “You Made the Grade” booklet, eligible students can simply present a valid military ID and proof of an overall “B” or better average to the Edwards AFB Exchange. Students may receive one coupon package for every qualifying report card, but may enter the gift card drawing only once per grading period.

Military families can contact the Edwards AFB Exchange for more information about “You Made the Grade” at (661) 258-1078.
