Celebrating the Class of 2020

A few months ago, Newton Nissan South made the decision to pivot their plans for their annual Student Car Giveaway. Typically, they would host a large gathering of students and their families to draw the winner of a brand new Nissan Versa. This year, they decided they wanted to celebrate the Class of 2020 Seniors, who lost so much to COVID-19’s disruption of normal school activities.

Newton Nissan South put together 6 scholarship offerings: 5 $1000 scholarships and 1 $5000 scholarship, to be awarded to eligible Tennessee High School Seniors for pursuing their college education. They drew the names in a Facebook Live Event on Friday, June 12.

The 5 $1000 winners were:
