Stuart Powell Ford continues FFA support
Stuart Powell Ford will join Ford Motor Co. in its ongoing commitment of $1 million in annual support to the National FFA Foundation, formerly known as Future Farmers of America.
Ford will provide support in 2009 for the 82nd National FFA Convention in Indianapolis and the FFA Washington Leadership Conference in Washington, D.C. In addition, Ford has committed to a 12th year of the Build Ford Tough collegiate scholarship program, which will award up to 700 FFA members with a $1,000 college scholarship, each co-sponsored by Ford dealers like Stuart Powell Ford.
Ford has supported FFA since the first F-Series truck was introduced in 1948, and has sponsored the Build Ford Tough collegiate scholarship program since 1997. The program has awarded more than $5 million in scholarships to more than 5,000 FFA members.
Stuart Powell Ford has supported the program for seven years and will be a 2009 sponsor for the Built Ford Tough scholarship program for Burgin High School, and Boyle, Garrard, Lincoln, Mercer, Casey, Marion and Washington county high schools. The dealership will help one local student attend the college of his or her choice.
FFA members must take their scholarship application to Stuart Powell Ford for the dealer signature and official dealer code to be included in the scholarship search. The applications will be sent to the National FFA for final judging and selection.
Ford's long standing support of the FFA has contributed to the F-Series being America's best selling pickup line for 31 years. Ford truck sales are connected with the success of the agricultural industry, which according to FFA, represents one out of five American jobs. The Ford support with local scholarships helps foster strong, lasting relationships between future agribusiness leaders and local dealers like Stuart Powell Ford.
