PRINTABLES, INC. DONATION IN APPRECIATION AND RECOGNITION OF NISSAN
On January 25, 2016, Debra and Michael Gallaway of Printables, Inc., a full-service printing company located in Gluckstadt, Mississippi, generously donated $500.00 to the Mississippi Automotive Manufacturers Association Educational Foundation in appreciation and recognition of the impact that Nissan Canton has had on our community.
Debra and Michael Gallaway value the tremendous effect that Nissan has had on the economy of our state and wanted to show their gratitude by making a donation to support the students that have a focus in automotive manufacturing. Since 2006, the Mississippi Automotive Manufacturers Association has awarded over $150,000 in scholarships, through the Mississippi Automotive Manufacturers Educational Foundation, to students studying automotive-related fields at Mississippi’s community colleges and universities.
Recently Nissan North America celebrated the production of its 3-millionth vehicle at the Canton Vehicle Assembly Plant located in Canton, Mississippi. Nissan has grown the Canton Vehicle Assembly Plant from a regional manufacturing facility to a global one, investing $2.9 billion in the plant since its opening in 2003 and supporting more than 6,000 manufacturing jobs.
Growing a strong automotive workforce is essential to the health of the automotive industry in our state. Providing support and opportunity is one way MAMA and its members can secure its future workforce. The ninth annual Cars Under the Stars event, which will be held March 4-5 at the Mississippi Trade Mart, helps fund our scholarship programs. The vintage car show is open to the public Saturday from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Admission is $10 for adults and free for children under 12. For more information, visit www.msclassiccruisers.com. This year we are thrilled to announce that we will have celebrity guests Ryan and Chris Taggart from the hit Discovery Channel television show, Street Outlaws, along with their car on display. This is going to be a fun and super day on Saturday. We know this year will have record attendance and hope to see you there!
Thank you, Debra and Michael, for your contribution!
