Valdosta, GA - Valdosta High School Senior Pierce Wallace was already amped up during the practice for his graduation ceremony... then he won a 2013 Scion for getting good grades. That's when he really lost it saying "wow I don't know what to say!!!"
Pierce's mother Carol said "we'll pray and we'll pray and we'll pray and so I guess, you know, the prayers worked!! And so thankfully it's just been awesome!"
Pierce said "well I have this really bad pang in the back of my head for some reason. I think I was screamed too loud and then I ran around and almost had a heart attack so I'm feeling pretty hyped!"
The free car was part of the Keys to the Future program hosted by Wiregrass Technical College and Valdosta Toyota. fifteen kids who performed well during the school year got the chance to win the grand prize. But only one drove away with it.
