Texas Direct Auto, the nations’ largest independent car dealership located in Fort Bend County, will continue to support the Fort Bend County Fair & Rodeo as a 2011 Keystone Sponsor donating $30,000 in part towards the Fort Bend County Fair scholarship program!
Texas Direct Auto believes that education is a vital part of our community and focuses on providing opportunities for higher education to youth in the Fort Bend County community. This unique partnership with the Fort Bend County Fair will help finance a number of scholarships awarded to local qualifying youth, as youth education is the primary focus of the fair as well. A long-standing tradition, the FBCFA awards 30 scholarships to high school youth through their involvement with the fair.
Texas Direct Auto Director of Business Development Jessica DeMarr states, “Our own program, ‘Scholarship Stars,’ is one example of our commitment to help students increase their educational opportunities. We are very happy to support FBCFA as they continue to honor qualifying county students with scholarships each year.”
2011 Fair President William Carter spoke about the Texas Direct Auto sponsorship saying, “We are very happy to have Texas Direct Auto’s support for another year as not only a sponsor but as committed active participants in the Fair as they will be providing cars for the parade and prizes for some of the special activities.”
