Avenue Scholars Foundation awards Baxter Auto “2016 Community Partner of the Year”

The Avenue Scholars Foundation is all about taking students of need, helping them get access to post-secondary experiences, and preparing them with skills to be successful in the Omaha workforce. Their mission: To ensure careers for students of hope and need through education and supportive relationships.

This past January, Avenue Scholar students shadowed employees at Mercedes-Benz of Omaha to experience a variety of career paths in the automotive industry.  The hard-working, dedicated scholars spent the day learning about the sales and service departments, acquired some hands-on automotive experience and assisted a few customers during their time at the dealership. 

Past Mercedes-Benz of Omaha Avenue Scholars, Kelli Kalskett and Cecilia Benitez-Degante, were offered full-time positions to join the Baxter Auto team after the completion of student internships. We are humbled that as a result of our partnership with the Avenue Scholars Foundation, we are helping students like Kelli and Cecilia develop the skills, knowledge and attitudes necessary for success in high school, post-secondary school and in the working world. We look forward to continuing our involvement and experiencing the impact that our partnership with Avenue Scholars has on our Omaha community.
