#Ford has supported the National FFA since the first F-Series truck was introduced in 1948, and has sponsored the Built Ford Tough collegiate scholarship program since 1997. The program, equally funded by Ford Motor Company and Ford dealers, has awarded over 7 million in scholarships to FFA members.

Wallwork Truck Center, Inc. is sponsoring the Built Ford Tough collegiate scholarship program for Kindred High School, Fergus Falls High School, Pelican Rapids, Barnesville High School, Hillsboro High School and Central Cass FFA(Caselton HS).  For the 2012-2013 school year, they are helping 1 local student(s) attend the college of their choice.

To be eligible, #FFA members must submit an online 2013 #Scholarship Application at www.ffa.org and take the required Signature Page to Wallwork Truck Center, Inc. for the dealer endorsement and official dealer code; thus providing FFA members the opportunity to meet – and thank – the dealer for their support of continuing education. 

“We’re pleased to be able to support the local chapter and Ford Motor Company in its strong commitment to the #National FFA”, says Bill Wallwork. “All our previous scholarship recipients tell us how grateful they are for the financial support and how the FFA experience has changed their lives.”

“Visit any local farm and you can see that trucks – particularly F-Series – play an integral role in the agricultural industry,” says Bill Wallwork.  We want to help these future leaders succeed and become our customers from the start of their careers to the end – just like many of their parents and grandparents.”
