Tifton, GA (WALB) - Back in March, Ford was offering $20 for every test drive that was taken at Tift County High School.

Friday at Griffin Ford in Tifton, two checks totaling five thousand dollars were given to the principal of the school.

To raise that amount, more than 200 people test drove the auto company's latest offerings. The principal of the high school says that gift shows the level of support that the community has for the school.

"This provides us an opportunity to get additional things for our students. And this is what it's all about, the school and the community working together as one," said Tift Co. High School Principal Willie Miles.

Not surprisingly, the most popular car to test out during the drive was the brand new Mustang. The dealership and the school are hoping to team up for another test drive program this Fall.
