In continued support of our community, Young Ford and Young Dodge of Morgan gave back in a big way at the Morgan High School basketball game on Tuesday night. During 2013 Young Ford / Young Dodge hosted several events, including the Drive 4 UR School event and a Trunk or Treat, each helping to raise money for the Morgan Education Foundation. Tuesday night at the MHS boys varsity game, Trent Jaques, general manager of Young Ford / Young Dodge, presented a check totaling $4,780 to Brenda Crossley, Morgan Education Foundation president.
Jaques stated, “We had some great events through the year to help raise money for the Morgan School District. We really admire the community’s support in raising money for the Morgan Education Foundation.”
The Morgan Education Foundation is an independent, not-for-profit organization whose purpose is to unite the community and enhance the educational experience of students in the Morgan School District.
“On behalf of the Morgan Education Foundation, the great people of Morgan County, and the local businesses, education is a top priority for all of us. We want the kids in the school district to succeed at the highest degree possible,” Crossley said. “With the help of everyone involved, we get that job done, but only because we all get on board and dig in to make things happen. We all care about every child and only expect the best for them.”
Crossley is very grateful for this generous donation. She shares, “This is huge! It helps us with our teacher grant. Everything goes back to the students and the teachers.”
The money raised will be given to Morgan High School benefiting its technology department.
