NASHVILLE, GA (WALB) - Last month Berrien High School in Nashville was chosen as one of only 125 high schools to participate in "Drive one 4UR School Program."

The program invited people to come test drive a vehicle and Ford Motor Company would donate money to the each school for each test drive for max of $6,000.

With the help of the student Berrien High received the full amount.

"They did a great job getting actual people and notifying them of the event. The day of the event the students basically ran the show,"  said BHS Teacher Ann Morris.

"It's a great feeling Bo Lovein Ford has always been community oriented and proud we were able to serve again," said Richard Powell of Bo Lovein Ford.

The money will go to aid student organization help pay for things that would normally be paid for by the student themselves.
