HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

On Wednesday afternoon, Vardaman Honda in Hattiesburg donated a car to Mississippi's Teacher of the Year and Administrator of the Year at Oak Grove Elementary School. Anna Morris, Teacher of the Year, and Patrick Harris, Administrator of the Year, received a 2015 Honda Civic. 

Morris will have the car for six months and Harris will take it over for the other six months, according to Vardaman Honda Sales Manager Ryan Matheny.

"The time, the effort and just all the hard work they’ve put in that doesn’t get recognized enough," Matheny said. "I think a car for a year is just a minimum of what we can do right now.”

Morris was very excited about her new ride. 

"Oh my gosh,  thank you so much and thank you for supporting education and thank you for blessing me in this incredible way," she said. "This just came at a time when I was in between cars and it was the perfect timing and a wonderful blessing and a great way to support teachers and education.”
