Cars Under the Stars Reception and Member Meeting Recap
MAMA held its 4th annual Cars Under the Stars classic car show preview reception Friday, March 6, 2015 at the Mississippi Trade Mart. The preview reception was one of several events that took place during Automotive Manufacturing Week in Mississippi, commemorating MAMA’s 10 years of service to the automotive industry.
Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant was a special guest speaker. William Jeanes, former editor of Car and Driver magazine, was the keynote speaker after the MAMA business meeting.
During the event, MAMA awarded the Tom Phillips Memorial Scholarship. Dave Boyer, 2015 president, and Gene Delcomyn, 2015 treasurer of MAMA made a presentation to Gavin Hudgins. The $5,000 scholarship was a one-time award to a Miss. Classic Cruisers member’s child. Gavin was selected by a committee of the Miss. Classic Cruisers. Tom Phillips was instrumental in facilitating the partnership between MAMA and the Miss. Classic Cruisers, and creating the Cars Under the Stars event.
