During this time of tight school budgets, a program offered by Ford is helping put more money in rural school coffers. The "Drive One 4 Ur School" program has been around for a couple years. Dick Anderson with Miller Ford in Madras says they managed to raise nearly $5000 this year. “The way it works is, Ford Motor Company and Miller Ford donates $20 per test drive. It was at Madras High School on Friday, April 8th and we had 239 local residents take a test drive, so it brought $4780 to Madras High School for student activities. This is the fifth year for the program in Madras, but this is the most money the community has raised.
