Longtime Washington area dealer group supporter, Larry Shulman, honored with his wife, Bobbi
Hats off to WANADAês Kindred-line member, Larry Shulman, who was honored recently with his wife of 49 years, Bobbi, by the Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Washington. Shulman, founder of the Shulman Rogers law firm, has been a second-to-none advocate for dealership career education. At a gala event full of notables from the business community, Congress, Montgomery County and the judiciary, the Shulmans were spotlighted for their years of game changing community service in a myriad of worthy causes, but most especially the advancement of career education.
Among other things, Larry Shulman was celebrated as a founder of the Montgomery County Students Automotive Trades Foundation in the late 1970s, which created the Minidealership program that continues to thrive in the county school system to this day. The Minidealership concept inspired other school systems, notably Fairfax County, to adopt auto dealer career education, and it set the stage for the Auto Dealer Education Instituteês Auto Technician Development Program, which has resulted in scores of professionals entering the ranks of dealership service departments as line technicians.
Bobbi Shulman, working separately and in tandem with Larry, has served on the boards of Montgomery College and the Universities at Shady Grove, in addition to serving as director of the Montgomery County Workforce Development Corporation. She also managed a national workforce grant for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
