The Reed Advantage Scholarships
Mr. Reed, who attend but was unable to complete his college career, greatly valued what he learned. From there, he built his career on hard work and natural business savvy. The Reed family applauds and continually seeks ways to support those who are pursuing their higher education.
“Sherry and I want to encourage students, especially those who want to pursue a career in the automotive industry,” said Mr. Reed. “There are so many opportunities available in all parts of the business, but today’s products require someone with advanced mechanical and technological skills. Today’s cars are essentially computers on wheels.”
The $30,000 in scholarship funds are divided into six $5,000 scholarships for students entering the DCCCD automotive programs in 2014 and 2015. Students will be required to submit an application and have the opportunity to be personally meet Mr. Reed and the managing partners of his two Dallas county dealerships. From there they may potentially be identified as future employees for his World Class Automotive Group. Information on the application process is available at www.Foundation.DCCCD.edu.
To take advantage of the Reed’s DCCCD pricing program called “Preferred Benefits to Students, Faculty & Staff: Be Smart! Buy Smart!” students and staff only need to show a valid DCCCD student ID or recent DCCCD pay stub. The stores will feature a page on their web sites that explains the pricing and benefits available from now through December of 2015 at www.parkcitiesfordofdallas.com or www.PrestigeGarland.com.
