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.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
