School surprises beloved custodian after losing car in crash

- It was an amazing surprise for a beloved member of the Dunwoody Schools community.

Vadel Gray had been driving a beat-up car to his job as a custodian at Dunwoody Elementary School. Gray’s car was so infamously rundown and old that it caught the attention movie producers, appearing as the car driven by the character Angela in the movie “Miracles from Heaven.”

A recent accident totaled that ride and Gray had gone without a car since. That changed during the school’s Spirit Night at Chick-fil-A this week. The Dunwoody Elementary School community teamed up with an online car retailer to provide a new set of wheels to a member of their family.

Carvana heard about Gray’s last car and offered to hand over the keys to a 2015 Mazda3 to him. The reaction Gray gave as he walked out to the parking lot and saw his new car is simply priceless, something one just has to see.
