TOWSON, MD Since 2014, MileOne Autogroup, the Mid-Atlantic’s largest automotive retail group, has supported employees and their families through its NextMile Scholarship program, which grants funding toward enrollment in a university, college and/or trade school.
Now, six years later, MileOne has surpassed the $1 million and has provided scholarships to 240 students who want to pursue their educational goals and enhance their careers – including 2019 recipient James Rew of Nottingham, a computer science major at University of Maryland, College Park. His father, Adam Rew, works for Mercedes-Benz of Silver Spring.
“Education is a clear path to ensuring that those in our MileOne families advance their careers, whether it be in the automotive industry or otherwise,” said Steven B. Fader, CEO for MileOne. “When we launched this program six years ago, we had aspirations that it would be well received, and the results have proven that.”
The 39 recipients of the 2019 NextMile Scholarship include students from Maryland, Virginia and Pennsylvania as well as one student from Michigan. Sixty additional students who were awarded scholarships in previous years will also receive additional scholarships to continue their education.
In addition to supporting employees and their families with The NextMile Scholarship program, MileOne is an avid supporter of the communities it serves across the Mid-Atlantic.
