WANADA would like to thank Fitzgerald Auto Mall, spearheaded by dealers Jack and Dottie Fitzgerald, who made a generous donation of $2,500 to the Automotive Dealer Education Institute (ADEI). Toyota Motor Company then matched that gift, for a total of $5,000.
ADEI’s nationally recognized training program for recent high school graduates and existing dealership employees is an “earn-while-you-learn” scholarship. It combines NATEF-certified classroom instruction in automotive repair fundamentals with real-world experience gained while working 40 hours per week at a WANADA member dealership. The ADEI scholarship is a four semester program conducted in partnership with Montgomery College in Rockville, Maryland, and, in Virginia with Marshall Academy in Falls Church and Hayfield Secondary School in Hayfield. Student ADEI program achievements can be applied toward an associate degree.
For the Fitzgerald group’s strong, longstanding support of WANADA’s Auto Technician Development Program through ADEI, the association expresses its sincere gratitude.Download Bulletin PDF
