Five Star Ford Lincoln is joining Ford Motor Company in its ongoing commitment to the National FFA (formerly known as the Future Farmers of America). Ford has committed to a 16th 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 Five Star Ford Lincoln.
High schools in Pacific and Grays Harbor counties that will benefit from the program include Willapa Valley, Ocosta, Montesano, Aberdeen and Elma.
For the 2012-2013 school year, they are helping five students attend the college of their choice.
To be eligible, FFA members must submit an online 2013 Scholarship Application at www.ffa.org and take the required Signature Page to Five Star Ford Lincoln 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”, said Five Star’s Rich Hartman. “All our previous scholarship recipients tell us how grateful they are for the financial support and how the FFA experience has changed their lives.”
