NEW CANAAN, CT - KARL Chevrolet has launched its twenty eighth Annual High School Scholarship Promotion this month, pledging to contribute $50 to area scholarship programs this spring in the name of each individual or business purchasing or leasing a new or Certified Pre-owned vehicle from April 1 – 30, 2013.

Since 1986 KARL Chevrolet’s scholarship drives have raised more than $92,000 for area high school graduates for their continuing education.

“As a leading business in the area, we feel it’s important to be actively involved in the communities that support us. The Scholarship Drive has become a signature event for us over the past twenty-eight years, and we’re delighted that we are able to continue making a significant contribution to help area students,” commented Leo E. Karl III, President of KARL Chevrolet. “With my own daughter set to graduate high school and move on to college this year, I know first hand the challenges of funding a higher education today. The simple fact is that tuition increases continue to outpace the rate of inflation. This magnifies the need for every dollar that will make a difference to students who need assistance. Over the years we’ve received wonderful comments about our Scholarship Drive from both customers and students. We believe our scholarship effort fits with the spirit of Winston Churchill’s famous saying ‘We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give,’ and we’re proud to put those words into action,” he added.

Schools participating in the KARL Scholarship program – New Canaan, Darien, Stamford, Westhill, Norwalk, Brien McMahon and Greenwich High Schools – are asked to use a student’s commitment to and involvement in both school and community volunteer activities as a factor for awarding the scholarships, Mr. Karl said. This criterion matches the Karl family’s own commitment to community service. All scholarships are administered by the local schools.

Founded in 1927, the KARL Company operates the award-winning, customer-focused Chevrolet Dealership at 261 Elm Street in New Canaan, one block west of the Metro North train station. KARL Automotive Service of Greenwich, which services all makes and models, is located at 1330 East Putnam Avenue, just off I-95 exit 5.
