Article Date:

Trent Jaques announced that Young Ford will be joining Ford Motor Company in its ongoing commitment to the National FFA through the Built Ford Tough collegiate scholarship program.  For the 2013-2014 school year, Young Ford will be helping one local student attend the college of their choice.
To be eligible, FFA members must submit an online 2014 Scholarship Application at www.ffa.org and take the required signature page to Young Ford 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,” Jaques said.  “All our previous scholarship recipients tell us how grateful they are for the financial support and how the FFA experience has changed their lives.”
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 over $7 million in scholarships to FFA members.
