Huntington Ford helps area youth with a head start in college

Huntington Ford of Rochester Hills has partnered with Oakland University to establish a scholarship for an incoming freshman from one of four Rochester area high schools – Adams, Stoney Creek, Rochester or Avondale.

The scholarship will support an OU student with a four-year renewable award to be applied toward the cost of tuition. In addition to good citizenship, candidates must demonstrate financial need, a passion for a particular subject matter or extracurricular activity and hold a minimum 3.30 GPA. The award this fall covers $10,000.

Patrick Scoggin, President and Owner of Huntington Ford, stands with scholarship recipient Jacqueline Yee.

“I am pleased to be able to support Oakland University as well as one of our own local exceptional students,” said Patrick Scoggin, President and Owner of Huntington Ford.

Jacqueline Yee, a Rochester High School graduate, received the Huntington Ford Scholarship. “I am thrilled to be attending Oakland University this fall,” she said. “To top it all off, I am extremely grateful to be this year’s recipient of the Huntington Ford Scholarship. Mr. and Mrs. Scoggin have made it possible for me to pursue my dream in the legal profession. Their kindness and generosity to form this scholarship and reach out to the greater Rochester community has been life-changing for me and I cannot be more thankful.”

The scholarship is renewable for an additional three years for a student who continues to demonstrate financial need, completes full-time credits during each fall and winter semester and maintains a minimum 3.30 GPA.
