VHS Senior, Kirsten Kielmar, Wins 2014 Scion iQ from Valdosta Toyota Scion

| May 5, 2014

Keys-to-the-Future-Valdosta-High-SchoolsVALDOSTA, GA – Valdosta High School teamed up with Wiregrass Georgia Technical College and Valdosta Toyota Scion for a third year to offer the Keys to the Future Program. This program has been successful by involving both the students and teachers requiring them to work together to set and achieve specific, individual goals for academics, attendance and extra-curricular activities throughout the school year.

Fifteen senior students had been drawn randomly yesterday to receive keys for today’s car giveaway. At the event, the students were given the opportunity to choose lanyards numbered 1 through 15; each had a key inside a plastic pocket. Once every student had chosen a lanyard, Ricky Stokes from Valdosta Toyota Scion began pulling numbers from a jar to determine which student would get to try and unlock the car. Making it all the way through 13 students without a winner, when student number 14 realized his key didn’t work, Kiersten Kielmar knew she was the winner.

Kiersten is the winner of the 2014 Scion iQ valued at $16,439. For each of the students who did not win the car, they were awarded other prizes such as Samsung Galaxy tablets, HD Kindle Fires, or HP laptops. In addition, Wiregrass Georgia Technical College awarded $500 scholarships to Christopher D. Williams and Caleb Graham. Valdosta City Schools and Valdosta High School is so thankful for these great partnerships and for the many sponsorships that made this wonderful day possible. Congratulations to all of the winners.
