Educational Excellence Award
Shortly after opening its doors for business in 2008, family-owned Toyota of Boerne established relationships with Boerne Independent School District staff and began the automotive program collaboration that we enjoy today. As a result of all their hard work, Toyota of Boerne is proud to announce that it was one of only three businesses to receive the Employers for Education Excellence Gold Award for 2019! Toyota of Boerne takes pride in its employees and in being an active member of this community, and that’s why they are committed to supporting both.
They are dedicated to providing the best opportunities for education, from creating student mentoring opportunities to building policies that allow our dedicated staff to attend parent-teacher conferences and take part in school activities during working hours. STEM, Automotive, and FFA programs provide crucial skills and are an incredible asset to local schools. That’s why Toyota of Boerne has continued to support and fund these programs over the years.
They also oversaw the acquisition of $90,000 in parts from Gulf States Toyota (GST), two donated vehicles from Toyota Motor North America (TMNA), donated equipment from the dealership, and assisted in achievement of certification with the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF). In addition to all of that, Toyota of Boerne is also behind the annual recognition and $10,000 award for Teacher of the Year!
In today’s workplace, there is an ever-growing need for skilled labor. The number of master craftsmen has seen a steady decline over the past decade and the skill gap is growing at an alarming rate. Toyota of Boerne has been extremely proactive in finding a solution right here in the community, through BISD CTE programs. Not only has Toyota of Boerne helped establish this program, but they also expanded their scholarship program by awarding three college scholarships for the Fall 2019 semester.
This award is close to their hearts, as it shows they hold themselves to the highest standards for a very noble cause. To Toyota of Boerne, there is no cause more important than education, and it has been their goal for years to continuously leave a positive impact on the Boerne Independent School District.
Toyota of Boerne looks forward to continuing their support of educational programs and developing more unique ways for their employees to get involved in the years to come!
