Free car winner

Tyler Holman, who graduated from Riverdale High School last month, sits in the 2019 Nissan Versa that she won in a good grades contest.

Tyler Holman, a student who graduated from Riverdale High School last month, won a new car last week because of her good grades.

The grand prize was a 2019 Nissan Versa, valued at $15,330.

The annual contest, hosted by Newton Nissan, is open to all students enrolled in a Middle Tennessee high school. This is the fourth year the giveaway has been held at Newton Nissan South in Shelbyville.

Students submit their most recent report card to the dealership and receive one contest entry for each “A” on the report card.

“Newton Nissan pays for both the car and sales taxes, so Tyler doesn’t have to pay anything for her new car,” Newton Nissan South’s General Manager and Operator Mike Castro said.

Holman plans to attend Cumberland University in the fall.
