New car is reward for good grades!

Valdosta -- A South Georgia teen wins a new car, all for being a good student. Students at Lowndes High School gathered at Martin Stadium to end the first year of their "Where There's a Wheel, There's Way" program.

Tenth grader Jacob Kemp came away with the ultimate prize-- a 2006 Nissan Xterra. Other rewards for students who excel in the classroom include MP3 players, computers, and digital cameras.

"I never expected to get a car. I figured an MP3 would be awesome or a digital camera," said 10th Grader Jacob Kemp.

But Jacob can't drive his car just yet, he doesn't turn 16 until next month.
