Derry Area High School Spanish teacher Kitty Kelly was chosen as the winner of a new car from The United Way of Westmoreland County.

Kelly was one of 10 finalists awarded a prize for participation in the 2012 annual campaign.

To be entered into the drawing held during the Jan. 11 luncheon at the Greensburg Garden and Civic Center, each finalist donated $3 or more each week to the United Way of Westmoreland County.

United Way President and CEO Bobbi Watt Geer and 2012 campaign Chairman Ken Altemus welcomed guests and thanked them for their participation in the campaign before presenting the prizes, including a 40-inch, high-definition television donated by Best Buy and a deluxe grill donated by Dominion Transmission.

Kelly, chosen as the grand prize winner, is able to pick a car from one of five sponsors: Hillview Motors, Smail Auto Group, Star Chevrolet, Toyota of Greensburg or Sendell Motors.

The organization also thanked the Charley Family of Shop 'n' Save stores and OMNOVA Solutions Inc. for donating other prizes throughout the campaign.

The United Way of Westmoreland County serves about 100,000 people in Westmoreland, Fayette and parts of Armstrong counties through partnerships that help children attain success in learning and life, support basic needs and financial stability of the community, as well as ensure health access and independence for residents.
