Strive to Drive free car

COLUMBIA, Tenn. (WKRN) – A student who just graduated from Columbia Central High School won a car Friday night thanks to his good grades.

Zach Taylor won a brand new 2015 Dodge Dart from Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Columbia.

Taylor plans to bring his new car with him to college when he starts at Tennessee Tech this fall.

The dealership hosted the Strive to Drive contest to motivate high school students to excel.

Any student who received As and Bs each 9-week grading period or had perfect attendance was automatically entered.

If a student met both criteria, their name was entered twice.

Taylor wasn’t the only teenager who went away with something free, though. Hundreds of dollars in gift cards were given to all the runners up.
