Texas Ford Dealers & Ford Motor Company Invest in Local Scholarships
A collaborative effort between North Texas Ford dealers and Ford Motor Company yielded nearly $350,000 in scholarships and technology prizes for local high school students. Ford dealers invested in the Texas scholarship program and Ford Motor Company Fund matched every dollar.
As chairman of the North Texas Ford Dealers, our own Sam Pack, worked closely with local high schools which each received up to three scholarships. The majority of scholarship recipients plan to pursue college degrees in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) and most will attend universities in Texas. As the state projected to have the second most STEM jobs in the country by 2018, these Texas students will have excellent career opportunities ahead of them.
Scholarship winners were announced at a celebration where students, parents, educators and community leaders were brought together. The Greater Dallas Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, Stars on the Rise initiative administered the awards. As one of several Ford Fund educational programs these scholarships conclude the North Texas Ford Driving Dreams initiative for the 2014 – 2015 school year. The program focuses on reading at an early age, helping students graduate from high school and go to college.
The Sam Pack family of dealerships is proud to be a part of our Texas community and looks forward to supporting and providing more education opportunities in years to come.
We invite you to stop by our Ford dealership in the Dallas Fort Worth area and discover all that we have to offer.
