Auto dealers group offers scholarship aid, funds to NH veterans programs
The Manchester soldier served in the U.S. Army and repaired and maintained tanks to ensure they were always combat-ready in case a crisis meant the military was called into action.
Cyr is the latest in a line of New Hampshire veterans who are taking advantage of scholarship aid from NHADA. She is using the funds to pay for automotive tech classes at Manchester Community College.
A growing number of these students are military veterans. Last fall, eight scholarships worth $11,000 were awarded by the NHADA's not-for-profit affiliate, the New Hampshire Automotive Education Foundation (NHAEF).
New Hampshire Auto Dealers wants to remind veterans these funds are available, and they are encouraged to apply for scholarship aid.
Last fall, the association named VCC as a major beneficiary of the state's first ever New Hampshire Auto Show.
"These types of programs are essential to military families and New Hampshire Auto Dealers are proud to support them," McNamara said.
