Even though HUMMER received the ax from General Motors earlier this year, KARL Chevrolet HUMMER in New Canaan, Connecticut is providing $4,500 in scholarships to area schools.
A few dealerships have decided to stick it out at least until the inventory of New HUMMERs dries up, but most are phasing out their operations, making a generous gift of scholarships even more meaningful.
“As a leading business in the area, we feel it’s important to be actively involved in the communities that support us. The Scholarship Drive has become a signature event for us, and we’re delighted that we are able to make a significant contribution to help area students again this year,” Leo Karl III told ConnecticutPlus.com. “With tuition increases continuing to outpace the rate of inflation, we know that every dollar makes a difference to students who need assistance. Our customers are also gratified to know that their purchase has helped our graduates further their education.”
The Karl family of dealerships have been passing out similar scholarships since 1986.
