D&H Enterprises are a proud partner of ASCEF, the educational foundation that started 20 years ago by the spouses of members of the Automotive Service Council of California (ASCCA).
The purpose of the ASC Educational Foundation is to provide educational and training, opportunities, scholarships and endowments in the field of automotive repair and maintenance. But that’s not all: ASCEF has been changing the lives of hundreds of students wanting to pursue a career in the automotive field.
The funds raised provide scholarships and support sustainable training programs throughout California.
The scholarship program is open to high school seniors who plan to enroll in post-high school technical/academic training or college undergraduates in the automotive service field satisfying certain criteria. Currently the Foundation issues eleven annual scholarships that can range from $1000 to $2000 and can be applied toward tuition, tools and books. In 2015 scholarships awarded totaled $14,800.
This was why D&H Enterprises had to get involved with this project: supporting education in the automotive field is as rewarding as having a successful business. Thanks to the generosity of Concord’s community we are now in a place we can give back with this wonderful town.
Everyday ASCEF makes a difference in young adults lives and D&H support, together with other donors support, has a huge impact on the continuity and future of this amazing project.
Joel Kumparak, student at DeAnza College, was one of ASCEF scholarship winners. As he stated: “Winning a scholarship from ASCEF has help me advance my education by helping me pay for classes at my local college that offers automotive training courses. I wasn’t able to afford my first year of college before earning the scholarship and had to borrow. Thank you ASCEF for everything, you guys made my college experience more enjoyable and less stressful and I’m so happy being able to take more automotive classes!”
By bringing your business to D&H you are also being a part of this project and actively participating in the education of young adults, changing their lives forever!
