PRLog - Dec. 2, 2010 - LOS ANGELES -- Susan Scarola has come a long way since her first, very brief career teaching kindergarten, but she had a special chance to revisit that role today. Currently the Vice Chairman of DCH Auto Group – among the top ten auto groups in the United States in terms of new vehicle retail sales – Scarola participated today in the Right Road Kids!™ programs that its founder, Paula Phillips, shared with children at Ramona Elementary School in Oxnard, CA.

Phillips regularly presents her award-winning Right Road self-esteem, character building, and educational enrichment programs in California schools and around the country, wherever teachers call on her. She says it was wonderful to have Ms. Scarola’s enthusiastic and wholehearted assistance in both the kindergarten and fourth grade classrooms.
“The awesome partnership between Right Road Kids!™ and DCH Auto Group has become a real model for how nonprofits, corporations, schools, and communities can and need to work together to make crucial positive change happen for kids,” Phillips said.
Scarola concurs, "DCH and I have been Right Road Kids supporters for many years now,” says Scarola, “and I was thrilled by the opportunity to participate. It was as exciting and meaningful for me as it was for the children!"
In 2010, Scarola and Phillips were instrumental in forging an even deeper partnership between DCH and Right Road Kids!™, which has resulted in even greater volunteerism opportunities for DCH employees. For instance, just two months ago, Phillips engaged a number of the DCH volunteers to help deliver and unveil 2,500-plus books to excited K-6th graders at Juan Soria Elementary School in Oxnard, CA in order to fill their empty school library shelves. While a myriad of Ventura County-based DCH Auto Group employees offer heartfelt support to the non-profit in the form of donations and volunteerism on a regular basis, this was New Jersey-based Scarola’s first opportunity to personally participate in Right Road Kids!™ classroom presentations.
Phillips is on a mission to be there for children at every turn and was thrilled that Scarola would be joining her as another positive role model, especially for the children at the financially-
Ventura County-based Paula Phillips and Right Road Kids!™ (formerly known as The Dream Fund Outreach) have been working directly with kids in schools, classrooms, and youth organizations throughout Ventura County and around the country for over eighteen years. Through a plethora of award-winning creative programs, the non-profit organization has inspired the self-esteem, character, confidence, and talents of tens of thousands of children and has been instrumental in helping them find and travel their right roads in school and in life. Phillips has been recognized by Congress and the California State Legislature and has received various awards from organizations such as the Conejo Las Virgenes Future Foundation and the National Association of Women Business Owners for her remarkable work with and for children. In November 2010, Phillips was honored by the Oxnard School Board for her extensive efforts to assist local schools.
