Yakima was named an All-American City by the National Civic League for its outstanding community-enhancement projects, among them Bud Clary’s P.A.C.E. Program (Perfect Attendance Creates Excellence). According to the Yakima Herald, this is the first time in 20 years such a designation has been given to the city.
Perfect Attendance Creates Excellence (PACE) is a program started by Bud Clary Auto Group family of dealerships that gives a free bike and helmet to any elementary school student who achieves perfect attendance during the school year. The Toyota dealership’s general manager, Jeff Mattson, and outreach coordinator, Robbie Bustos, presented alongside Omar Santoy, who has seen the benefits of the program in his work as a counselor at Adams Elementary School in Yakima.
Bud Clary is proud to be an active member of the Yakima community and will continue to support the city in which we live and do business.
