On January 28, please join us as Ford announces major investments and programs in education in north Texas. The announcement will take place during a high-energy Ford Driving Dreams pep-rally at Moises Molina High School in Dallas in front of 900 students.
A high-energy pep rally announcing that the North Texas Ford Dealers and Ford Motor Company Fund have teamed up to deliver more than half a million dollars in education resources to students in North Texas. Nationally recognized empowerment speaker Roy Juarez, Jr. whose powerful story was featured in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Extraordinary Teens, will kick off the program at a pep rally.
This builds on the important initiative that launched in 2013. This initiative incentivizes students through scholarship opportunities and prizes to graduate on time and enroll in college. This is a unique collaboration that will award approximately $365,000 in scholarships to students that live where Ford operates. Every dollar invested by individual Ford dealers has been matched by Ford Motor Company Fund, the company’s philanthropic arm, making it possible for each dealer to award $6,000 in scholarships to high schools in their vicinity. The program allows participating Ford dealers the opportunity to connect with their local communities and ensures that Ford’s educational efforts are reaching the expansive North Texas community– from Dallas and Farmers Branch to Palestine. The scholarships will be administered by Stars on the Rise, an education initiative by the Greater Dallas Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.
Additional motivational rallies will be held at Diamond Hill-Jarvis High School (in Dallas), H. Grady Spruce High School and South Hills High School, both in the Fort Worth Independent School District.
