Loading... Be Patient!

I just wanted to say thank you so much to TrueCar for sponsoring TWELVE full-ride scholarships to attend AutoCon this past week.  As well as Ralph Paglia, Chris Saraceno, Mike Myers, Carrie Hemphill and Brian Pasch for going through applications and choosing me to be one of the recipients. 


I was so excited to attend AutoCon, especially after attending First Class Educator's Automotive Boot Camp, I knew this would be a wonderful event.  After reading the list of different workshops offered I was anxious to get to Las Vegas, I knew I would be coming home with SO much information and ready to tackle whatever happened to land on my desk!

AutoCon was a wonderful event and I feel so blessed knowing that I was able to attend.  The agenda flowed well...The general sessions were inspirational! I couldn't decide which workshops to attend because there were so many GREAT ones to choose from! The floor plan of the convention center worked so well with the exhibit hall, sessions, meals...and who didn't love the dessert?!



I came home with pages of notes AND some new friends in our industry, this definitely exceeded my expectations.


Thank you again TrueCar for the scholarship... and Thank you Ralph Paglia, Carrie Hemphill and First Class Educators for yet another...FIRST CLASS event!

I'll second Tom, thank you for sharing Ashley! What are some of the sessions you went to... I think I know one of them! LOL

Great post!  Thanks Ashley for sharing.  I know you deserved it!

Ashley, thank you for the great blog post and for being the active member of the ADM Professional Community that you are. For those that don't remember, Ashley was one of two winners to score ADM Full Ride Scholarships to the Automotive Boot Camp last Spring... Then, she was selected for one of the 12 TrueCar sponsored AutoCon Full Ride Scholarships for ADM Professional Community Members.  Both of these Scholarships that Ashley took advantage of are part of the ongoing initiative to provide ADM Professional Community members with privileges that reward their participation in the community.

Thank you for all that you do, Ashley and for making Access Ford THE place to buy a new or used Ford in Corpus Christie, TX!
