(Acworth, Ga. – Dec. 11, 2015)


The Chattahoochee Tech Foundation is partnering with AutoNation in Fall 2015 to launch a first-of-its-kind award at Chattahoochee Technical College.

Each month in the Fall and Spring Semesters, outstanding students enrolled in Automotive Technology will be recognized as Student of the Month, receiving a certificate of recognition and a $250 cash award, provided by AutoNation. Additionally, AutoNation will recognize a Student of the Semester, receiving a $500 cash award, and Student of the Year, recognized with a $1,000 cash award.

Students Michael King of Dallas, Tharis Word of Cartersville and William Beasley of Canton each received a $250 cash award and a certificate of recognition on Wednesday, Dec. 9.

Through AutoNation’s generosity, Chattahoochee Tech is able to recognize its best and brightest students in the Automotive Technology program. Students who show outstanding leadership skills, significant levels of academic improvement, or who demonstrate a higher level of commitment to their studies can be nominated by program faculty. Those nominations are submitted to AutoNation for selection and awarding of the scholarship awards.

Kristen Sowemimo, market human resources manager for AutoNation, says the company looks forward to a continued partnership with Chattahoochee Technical College and congratulates the award winners.
