Seniors from five local high schools were eligible for the program, and 144 qualified to participate in the final drawing.

"To the people who made this possible, I'm just really, really thankful and blessed, because there are some nice people here who are willing to help out a senior," Alex said in a news release. "I hope that their futures will also be blessed, because I know that they have been doing so many good things and serving others through their company."

The car was donated by Honda of Spring.
