OSCEOLA, AR (KAIT) -

Pafford Ambulance service donated several bikes to a school in Osceola.

Carroll Smith Elementary got eight bikes from Pafford to give out to students in each grade.

Pafford gave two bikes to students in grades 1st through 4th.

According to Principal Stefanie Smithey, students were entered into a drawing for the bikes if they did not get an office write up the entire year.

Smithey said this is the third year Pafford has donated bikes to the school.

She said Carroll Smith Elementary has wonderful students who deserve this reward.

One student won a bike in the drawing but already had a new bike at home, so he gave the bike back so another student could have an opportunity to win in the drawing.
