Barry Nelson and Family of Martinsville earned the 2013 Chancellor’s Award for Leadership in Philanthropy, according to a release from Patrick Henry
Community College Foundation.
Nelson, who was nominated by Patrick Henry Community College, was presented the award at a luncheon ceremony at the Country Club of Virginia on April 16. Nelson
and his family have always been strong supporters of the college, particularly the Athletic Program, PHCC officials said, according to the release. In addition to cash
donations of more than $100,000, Nelson has given numerous in-kind donations from sports equipment and transportation for athletic teams, to providing retail
space for teams to use in inclement weather, the release stated. For his work in revitalizing the PHCC baseball program, he was named to the PHCC Athletic Hall of
Fame as part of the inaugural class of 2007. “Education is the most important thing we can do in this region to bring us out of the economic spiral,” Nelson said.
“I’m delighted to help this next generation become prepared for what’s next.” The Chancellor’s Award for Leadership in Philanthropy luncheon is hosted by the
Virginia Foundation for Community College Education (VFCCE) to honor the leading philanthropists from each of Virginia’s 23 community colleges as well as the
statewide foundation. This marks the eighth year the awards have been given. This year’s class of distinguished philanthropy leaders has contributed a combined
total of more than $17 million dollars to Virginia’s Community Colleges. “The generosity of the two dozen philanthropy leaders we honor represents a brilliant
collection of individuals, foundations and employers who believe in the sheer beauty of transformation,” VCCS Chancellor Glenn DuBois said. “They believe in
the knowledge and skills that Virginia’s Community Colleges offer to every Virginian. We thank them deeply for the partnerships that demonstrate the brilliance
of philanthropy.” The honored philanthropists will have a scholarship named after them which will be awarded next fall to a student attending their community college.
Kia’s all- luxury flagship sedan, the Quoris (K-9), which goes on sale outside Korea later this year, promises high performance and a new level of luxury driving pleasure. Kia’s first modern rear-wheel drive car is a true landmark vehicle for the company.
“As our first modern rear-wheel drive large sedan, the Kia Quoris offers unprecedented sporty driving dynamics and premium ride comfort thanks to the optimum harmony of a powerful V6 engine mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission featuring shift-by-wire technology, a near-perfect front/rear weight distribution and an electronically controlled air suspension system with a self-leveling function,” comments Soon-Nam Lee, Kia’s Director of Overseas Marketing Group. “In addition, a host of abundant driver assistance and active safety features completes the Quoris as a true premium sedan.”
There’s no way Scion can top the FR-S debut from last year’s Detroit Auto Show, so the brand is going rogue and banking on “high tech wizardry” to bring people into its booth.
Don’t expect any holographic Merlin likenesses delivering the press conference, though. In total, there will be 10 Scion vehicles “populating” the brand’s space along with elevated video walls to create a 360 degree experience.
Of course, the FR-S will still be at center stage as the main attraction, although Scion promises its booth will focus on interactivity.
Be sure to stop in at Nelson Toyota Scion to test drive the all new Scion!
