JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

An Oak Grove elementary school teacher is the lucky winner of a new car as part of a national promotion by Hertz. Gregg Bellipanni was presented with the keys to his new Dodge Challenger Wednesday afternoon at the Hattiesburg-Laurel Regional Airport.

He won the grand prize in the Working for the Weekend contest.

The 6th grade special education teacher says he entered the sweepstakes after seeing an ad for it online.

"I just saw a website banner that said Hertz Working for the Weekend and I clicked on it and it took me to the Hertz site and there was a little thing that said enter here and I entered there," said Bellipanni.

"This is very exciting for the Hertz Corporation and for the Hub City area," said Anthony Mohorn, area manager for Hertz. "We're lucky enough to have our winner come from here, he's definitely home-grown and we're happy to pass on the keys," Mohorn said.

Bellipanni actually won the contest last November.
