Post Falls graduate wins new car in school, dealership giveaway

Kalli Minden is walking away from Post Falls High School with a diploma — and a new car. The graduate has her grades to thank for that.

Minden was one of 150 students eligible to win the 2018 Nissan Versa, because they each have either perfect attendance or a 3.5 grade point average or higher.

Findlay Automotive Group in Post Falls gave the car away in a reverse drawing Tuesday. The person who had their name called last would win the car. Minden was the lucky winner, beating out other students from Post Falls High School, Lake City High School and Coeur d’Alene High School.

Minden said she’s been driving a nearly 20-year-old pickup truck to class, so the thought of winning a new set of wheels was a big motivation for her this year.

“It was hard to go to school but I thought about this car and went to school,” Minden said. “It’s so crazy, it’s so fun that I won a car.”

Findlay Automotive Group said this was a true giveway — Minden won’t even have to pay the taxes on her brand new car.
