Students to Receive Free Bicycles at Ivy Tech’s Public Safety Academy

EVANSVILLE – Middle school and elementary school students in the Ivy Tech Community College Public Safety Academy (a partnership with the Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation’s 21st Century Community Learning Centers and the Department of Parks & Recreation), will get a nice reward for good attendance and good behavior in the program this year…a new bicycle, helmet and lock.  

The majority of the 140 bicycles will be awarded to students during two special events at Ivy Tech Community College this Wednesday, June 29 at 1:30 p.m. and Thursday, June 30 at 1:30 p.m. The Evansville Bicycle Club will be assisting with the event and will help adjust the bike seats and helmets to ensure a proper fit.

Bicycles will be presented to the students by representatives from local public safety agencies, EVSC, and Ivy Tech. Students will also be treated to an afternoon of fun, including activities, snacks, a tour of Ivy Tech, and a video on safe biking.
