DELPHOS — Randy Custer has announced that Raabe Motor Sales, Inc., will join 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 Raabe Motor Sales, Inc.
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.
Raabe Motor Sales, Inc., is sponsoring the BFT collegiate scholarship program for Jefferson High School, Elida High School and Spencerville High School. For the 2012-2013 school year, they are helping four local student(s) 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 Raabe Motor Sales, Inc., 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,” Custer 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.”
“Visit any local farm and you can see that trucks – particularly F-Series – play an integral role in the agricultural industry,” says Randy Custer. 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.”
