Six High School Students Awarded Scholarships From Newton Nissan In Gallatin, TN
Changing The Car Giveaway
A few months ago, Newton Nissan of Gallatin made the decision to pivot their plans for their annual Student Car Giveaway. Typically, they would host a large gathering of students and their families to draw the winner of a brand new Nissan Versa. This year, they decided they wanted to celebrate the Class of 2020 Seniors, who lost so much to COVID-19’s disruption of normal school activities.
Newton Nissan put together 6 scholarship offerings: 5 $1000 scholarships and 1 $5000 scholarship, to be awarded to eligible Tennessee High School Seniors for pursuing their college education. They drew the names in a Facebook Live Event on Friday, June 12.
The 5 $1000 Winners Were:
Fabian Lopez – Gallatin High School (Tennessee Tech)
Copeland Krueger – Beech High School (Austin Peay State University)
Ethan Sanford – Station Camp High School (Brigham Young University – Idaho)
Ashlyn Thrift – Dayspring Academy (Western Kentucky University)
Danica Dudinetz – Mt Juliet High School (Austin Peay State University)
