Rowan roundup: Auto dealers group donates $100,000 to teaching center
The Charitable Foundation of the N.C. Auto Dealer Association, a trade association representing 700 franchised car, truck and RV dealers, has donated $100,000 to the N.C. Center for the Advancement of Teaching.
The donation was presented by Foundation Chair Cyndie Mynatt of Concord and Bill Brown of Greenville, association chairman. It will benefit future programming for teachers as well as automobile technology education in public schools.
As part of the partnership, the center for teaching will develop a seminar specifically designed to encourage the retention of vocational education teachers.
“This partnership is good for North Carolina’s future economic growth and development,” said Mynatt, also an association director and part of the Ben Mynatt Family of Dealerships. “Our goal is to make sure the best and brightest teachers in North Carolina stay enthusiastic, energized and excited to make an impact in North Carolina.”
