A Porter High School graduate got the surprise of his life in Brownsville Today.

Enrique Soto didn’t miss a single day of school since kindergarten all the way through graduation day!

BISD Superintendent Dr. Esperanza Zendejas bought Enrique a new 2015 Mazda with her own money.

Enrique had no idea he’d be driving off in a new car because he was told today’s ceremony was just for a perfect attendance certificate. Needless to say he had a few tears of joy.

“I couldn’t believe I won a car like, I’ve never won anything big in my life so just by winning the car was something I can’t explain so tear came out of my eyes.”

Dr. Zendejas said this is a gift from the heart. Because of his dedication to education. We asked Enrique if he plans on keeping up the perfect attendance in college, he said, he’s going to try.
