The Salute to Education program is a corporate sponsored scholarship program funded by the San Diego County Ford dealers and Ford Motor Company. Salute to Educationʼs main purpose is encouraging students to continue their educations, whether it be at a technical/vocational school, junior college or university.
Over the past 13 years the San Diego County Salute to Education program has awarded $2.8 million to San Diego County high school seniors. Twenty eight hundred (2,800) students each received a $1,000 scholarship for further education. In addition, 12 of the scholarship recipients also received new Ford vehicles.
The Jackie Robinson Family YMCA believes failure is not an option when it comes to helping kids graduate from college. The San Diego County Ford
