Ford of Clinton and Ford Motor Company join together for another year of the Built Ford Tough scholarship program.
Ford of Clinton is proud to announce they are joining with Ford Motor Company for the 16th year of the Built Ford Tough scholarship program. This program awards $1,000 scholarships to hundreds of FFA (Future Farmers of America) members across the country. Ford Motor Co. has been supporting the National FFA since 1948, when the F-series truck was introduced.
This year, Ford of Clinton will help six local students attend the college of their choice. The schools being sponsored by Ford of Clinton are Clinton High, Midway High, Hobbton High, Lakewood High, Union High and Harrell’s Christian Academy. Ford of Clinton has been sponsoring the Built Ford Tough program since 1997.
To be eligible for the scholarship award, FFA members must complete the 2013 Scholarship Application and submit it online at www.ffa.org. FFA members must also fill out the Signature Page with the Ford of Clinton dealer endorsement and official dealer code. This also provides applicants the opportunity to meet and thank the dealer.
Larry McPhail, owner at Ford of Clinton, shared his thoughts on the scholarship program, “Visit any local farm and you can see that trucks, particularly F-Series, play an integral role in the agricultural industry. 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 and Ford dealers from across the country have awarded FFA members over seven million dollars in scholarships since the program first began. McPhail is, “pleased to be able to support the local chapter and Ford Motor Company in its strong commitment to the National FFA.” For more information about the program or about Ford cars contact Ford of Clinton the premiere dealership of the Clinton, North Carolina area at (888) 903-7849.
