Join us in congratulating Bartow Ford on 74 years in business! One of the ways it celebrated was by giving away a new car during its 29th annual Drive for Excellence. The program honors 20 Polk County seniors annually for their academic success.

This year each student was given the opportunity to draw keys to win a new Mustang. Pictured here is Maddison Allen, a senior at Auburndale High School, who plans to go into the medical field.
