Ford has committed to a fourteenth year of the Built Ford Tough – FFA collegiate scholarship program, which will award $1,000 scholarships to hundreds of FFA members, each co-sponsored by Ford Dealers like Kinsel’s Live Oak Motors, Inc..
Ford has supported the National FFA since the first F-Series truck was introduced in 1948, and has sponsored the Built Ford Tough collegiate scholarship program since 1997. The program, equally funded by Ford Motor Company and Ford dealers, has awarded almost $6.1 million in scholarships to FFA members.
Kinsel’s Live Oak Motors, Inc. is sponsoring the Built Ford Tough collegiate scholarship program for Three Rivers High School, George West High School and Tilden High School. For the 2010-2011 school year, they are helping 3 local student(s) attend the college of their choice.
To be eligible, FFA members must submit an online 2011 Scholarship Application at www.ffa.org and take the required Signature Page to Kinsel’s Live Oak Motors, Inc. for the dealer endorsement and official dealer code; thus providing FFA members the opportunity to meet – and thank – the dealer for their support of continuing education.
“We’re pleased to be able to support the local chapter and Ford Motor Company in its strong commitment to the National FFA”, says Brady Kinsel. “All our previous scholarship recipients tell us how grateful they are for the financial support and how the FFA experience has changed their lives.”
“Visit any local farm and you can see that trucks – particularly F-Series – play an integral role in the agricultural industry,” says Brady Kinsel. We want to help these future leaders succeed and become our customers from the start of their careers to the end – just like many of their parents and grandparents.”
Ford Motor Company’s 2010-2011 commitment includes substantial support of National FFA events, and $1,000 collegiate scholarships for hundreds of FFA members; Ford, with local dealers such as Kinsel’s Live Oak Motors, Inc., has awarded 6,060 scholarships since 1997.
•For the 2010-2011 school year, Kinsel’s Live Oak Motors, Inc. is sponsoring three Built Ford Tough scholarships to help students attend the college of their choice.
•FFA develops students’ leadership, business skills and community service in preparation for a career in agriculture, which accounts for 1 out of 5 U.S. jobs.
