-- The Crown Automotive Group announced that, for the fourth consecutive year, the local dealer group would help sponsor the Walkers Rising Stars Scholarship Competition. Jim Myers, President and Chief Operating Officer at the Crown Automotive Group, and his wife Melissa have been the emcees for the past several years to help recognize the hard work of the students who compete for the chance to be a Walker's Rising Star.
"We are always happy to be a part of these community events," said Myers. "Seeing the talents and dedication that the students show is incredibly inspiring."
Walker Rising Stars was the inspiration of Dr. Jeffrey Walker to reward student performers in Pinellas County with scholarship opportunities. 16 years later, it's still delivering on its mission to help exceptionally talented students use their skills to earn themselves scholarships. Students can compete in several categories, including dance, instrumental, theater, visual arts, vocals and culinary arts and this year competed for more than $40,000 in college scholarships and prizes.
