June 11, 2020
The winner of Beasley Media Group's Driven 2 Excel program, sponsored by Lumberton Honda, was St. Paul's High School's Jayla Locklear. This deserving teen won a new 2019 Honda Civic LX, in recognition of her stellar academic achievements, including maintaining a GPA of 3.2 for each grading period, and also for her excellent school attendance.
Piedmont Natural Gas and Lumberton Honda also teamed up to offer $1,000 scholarships, awarded to six students. The winners were:
- Vera McNeil of Fairmont High School
- Labreah McNair of Lumberton Senior High School
- Savannah Lowery of Purnell Swett High School
- Erika Castrjon of Red Springs High School
- German Martinez-Catrjon of Early College High School
- Tiffany Smith of St. Paul’s High School
Due to the impact of COVID-19, a group celebration was not possible, so Beasley Media and Lumberton Honda also sponsored a senior parade. Seniors decorated their cars and drove through the Lumberton Honda dealership, where they received gifts from the sponsors. A contest for the Best Decorated Car was won by Ryley Floyd of Lumberton High School for his “COVID-car”, for which he received a special prize pack.

St. Paul's High School Graduate Jonathan Flores Hernandez wins New Car in Driven 2 Excel Program
June 13, 2019
Years of hard work and dedication paid off for Jonathan Flores Hernandez Wednesday night. The recent St. Paul's High School graduate won a new car in Beasley Media Group’s Driven 2 Excel program, sponsored by Lumberton Honda.
Beasley Media of Fayetteville (Foxy 99, WKML, My Kiss Radio, Sunny 94.3, 96.5 BOB FM, Old School 107.7) awarded Jonathan a brand new 2019 Honda Fit from Lumberton Honda for his academic and attendance achievements this school year. To qualify, students had to maintain a GPA of 3.2 for each grading period of the 2018-2019 school year, and have had no more than five unexcused absences. The car was awarded at a special event Wednesday evening at Lumberton Honda.
“I’m so excited that this works and I no longer have to borrow my parents’ car to go to work,” Flores Hernandez said. “I didn’t think I would win, but when I heard my name called my heart sank. I’m still in shock.”
Jonathan, who currently works at Chick-fil-A, plans to attend Robeson Community College in the fall and hopes for a career in electrical engineering.
“This is so great! My son is a very serious student,” Jonathan’s father Amando Florez said through a translator. “He should definitely not take this for granted. He’s so blessed to have this happen. But be careful!”
And while, Jonathan and his family worked hard to get to this point, it also wouldn’t be possible without the hard work amazing teachers put in along the way. To help thank teachers in Robeson County for their hard work, Beasley and Biggs Park Mall awarded a $1,000 shopping spree to one dedicated teacher.
Phillip Tyler, coincidentally also from St. Paul’s High School won this year’s shopping spree.
