Kelly Clarkson will be playing a special concert for the students of Wilson Central High School this spring. 

Wilson Central won the concert through State Farm’s Celebrate My Drive contest, which put the schools in charge of collecting commitments for safe drivers. Wilson Central was the top vote getter in the large school category, and will receive $100,000 grant as well. 

“State Farm is proud of Wilson Central High School’s efforts to generate excitement among students, faculty and the entire community to make safe driving commitments and have positive conversations about teen driver safety,” said State Farm Agent Jeff Gannon. “Our goal is to celebrate the joy of getting a license and encourage young people to be safe on the road.”

Mt. Juliet High School also performed well in the contest, and came away with a $25,000 grant. 

Both schools were awarded checks at pep rallies Friday. 

Gannon was unsure of the date for the Clarkson concert, but it should be in the spring.
