Fauquier High principal Tripp Burton congratulates Daniel Succop for winning the dark blue 2014 Chevy Cruze donated by Country Chevrolet. Succop's name was drawn around 4Am out of the 200-300 students still at the after prom party at the high school.
It took three attempts to find a winner. The first name drawn was for a girl who was no longer there, and students needed to be present to win. The second person was an exchange student, who was ineligible to win the car. Principal Tripp Burton clearly knew who the third student was, and he spent a few moments dropping hints before he finally called out Daniel Succop by name.
ÒI was very surprised,Ó Succop said. ÒIt almost seemed like I was in a dream that I needed to wake up from, but it was reality!Ó As he approached the prize table to shake hands with Principal Burton, he was congratulated by his parents, Kim and Jim, who have served on the after prom party committee for nearly a decade.
The 18-year- old has been active during his four years at Fauquier High School, playing football and participating in DECA and SCA. In his free time, he enjoys hockey, fishing, and spending time with friends. In the fall, Succop heads to West Virginia University, where he plans on studying business and marketing.
