Brooks and Barrow had no idea they had been selected when they showed up to the basketball game on Cherry Drive and were delighted when the Lanett Parks and Recreation called out their names and rolled out the brand new bikes onto half court.
"Walmart reached out to us and asked if would like to give them away to deserving students. We just thought this would be a nice thing to do for these two students", said Lanett Parks and Recreation Director Trent McCants.
The students were recommended by their teachers, and according to McCants, Lanett Parks and Recreation will be doing the same thing for two Springwood students next week.
