Braman Motorcars Presents:
The Teacher and School-Related Employee of the Year Celebration
Braman Motorcars totally surprised two Palm Beach educators with new BMW’s during an Awards ceremony held at Braman Motorcars in Palm Beach today.
Jane Winters, the Afterschool Site Director at Beacon Cove Intermediate School won the School-Related Employee of the Year for 2017 and Dr. Evangeline Aguirre, ESOL Intensive Reading and English teacher at Palm Beach Central High School is the Teacher of the Year for the 2017-2018 school year.
“Partnerships between the School District and our local businesses are essential to the success of our students and schools,” said Superintendent Robert Avossa. “Our community and business partners are important to the District, and we are grateful to Braman for stepping up to help us recognize these employees.”
Hosting the reception is just part of a growing partnership between Braman Motorcars and the School District. The company has joined with the automotive academy at Park Vista High School to provide training and on-the-job experience for its students, is holding a job fair at the dealership later this month for students to explore careers in automotive, has worked with educators on the real-world demands of the job market to take back to their students and recently has begun offering financial incentives to
District employees for the purchase of BMW’s and MINI’s through a new Corporate Fleet Program developed with the District.
“The development of our youth is paramount to the long term success and development of our community,” said Stephen Grossman, General Manager & COO of Braman Motorcars. “We plan to support the School District’s five-year strategic plan and lead by example so that other county businesses see the potential to invest in our collective futures through our public school system.”
Braman Motorcars is no stranger to the District, as a supporter of the music department at the Alexander W. Dreyfoos Jr. School of the Arts and a substantial five-year financial commitment to Jupiter High School. Braman also recently provided a holiday lunch and shopping spree for students from
Boynton Beach High School.
