Welcome Back to School!

August 30th, 2018 by

Our local students are not the only ones who are excited to kick off a new schoolyear: our teammates at Hendrick Lexus Northlake and Hendrick Motors of Charlotte are just as excited to start this year off with a bang.

Along with a handful of dealerships, these two teams specifically support one partner school within the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools system. From “Reading and Recess” events at the school to mentorship opportunities at the dealerships, these teams are “all in” when it comes to supporting local students.

Another way Hendrick Automotive Group supports schools is by working to boost morale. Many times at-risk students do not experience stability at home, so having the same teachers year to year assures their needs are already known and can be addressed more quickly. With this in mind, a number of dealerships implemented a teacher of the month and year program in their partner schools.

Teachers nominated by their peers receive a car tune-up to assure their car is in great working order. Then the teacher of the year nominated from the monthly winners receives a total makeover. Teachers are then thanked and recognized at the dealerships’ monthly luncheons.

To celebrate the back to school season, we wanted to share this special video with you. How can you make a difference in the life of a student or teacher this year?
