MONDAY, APRIL 30TH: BUCCANEERS HELP DIANA ROSE
GET ON THE ROAD TO SUCCESS

 

On Monday, April 30th, LBs Quincy Black and Dekoda Watson, along with Buccaneers cheerleaders and staff, surprised Diana Rose with a new car through the Buccaneers' third annual "Road to Success" program. Rose, a single mother of four children, was honored by the team with a 2012 Ford Focus in front of family and coworkers. Rose was selected out of over 400 applicants who were nominated on Buccaneers.com for the "Road to Success" program, which asked fans to share their stories about individuals who they thought were deserving of a new car. Rose travels two hours each way for her job as a Public Assistance Eligibility Specialist by using public transportation, yet she is never late for work. She is also a mentor at Clearwater High School, where she walks over three miles each way to mentor students. She also tutors math students every Thursday at Bellair Elementary School, where she is an active member of the P.T.A. Additionally, Rose has developed a poetry lesson for the Sixth Grade Language Arts Department at Largo Middle School, and she is currently in the process of publishing a poetry book for the students.

Along with the new car, the Buccaneers provided Rose with Hess gasoline for an entire year and six months of car insurance from Geico. To see more from Monday's surprise, click here or visit www.buccaneers.com.
