She may not be able to drive yet, but Elkhart Memorial High School freshman Krystal Grubb just received her first car.

Grubb won a silver PT Cruiser from Lochmandy Motors on Tuesday, June 4, in a raffle at her high school, The Elkhart Truth’s news partners WNDU reported. She qualified for the raffle because she had perfect attendance for the 2013-2014 school year.

"I was just sitting in the crowd, waiting for somebody else to get it, and then they called my name,” Grubb told WNDU.

Grubb also plays tennis for the Chargers, which she credits for helping her get to school every day.
