ELYRIA, OH (WOIO) - Talk about the graduation gift of a lifetime!

2010 Elyria High School graduate Amelia Jackson was the lucky recipient of a new Hyundai Accent.

The president of Elyria Hyundai, Colin MacLean, wanted to give back to the community, so he came up with the car giveaway for eligible, graduating seniors.

School officials set the ground rules earlier this year - only students with a 2.5 GPA or higher who participate in extracurricular activities with no disciplinary problems would be considered for the new car.

No word on where Amelia is attending college, but here's hoping she commutes so she can drive her new car to class!
