This "Champions" event has grown tremendously important to the state of New Hampshire. It highlights individuals who are not only dedicated to their industry, but also their community, and are willing to give back. 

On Tuesday, the New Hampshire Automobile Education Foundation (NHAEF) President and owner of Tulley Automotive Group, Mark Tulley (pictured above), was one of the 20 individuals recognized.

Mark has been a staunch supporter of students pursuing auto tech careers for years. He has been an active supporter of the Nashua Auto Tech CTE program and has committed significant organizational resources to greatly improve the program, including their live shop. Mark, the President of the NHAEF, also does a great deal in getting auto dealers to kick in and support many scholarships for students to attend CCSNH's auto 1 and 2 programs on a statewide basis. 

This year alone the NHAEF awarded over $85,000 in scholarships.

What is Work-Based Learning?

Work-Based Learning is a partnership between schools and employers, offering all students opportunities for practical educational experience, including real-world occupational settings to expand career options. 

WBL is an essential activity linked to CTE, ELOs, career pathways, apprenticeship and other career-driven learning. It gives students the "why" of their learning.


NHAEF Mission Statement:

Driving New Hampshire’s automotive workforce through innovative industry and education partnerships.
