Northwood University in Midland, Mich., honored 14 dealers with its Dealer Education Awards at a ceremony held in conjunction with the National Automobile Dealers Association convention in Las Vegas. The dealers honored for their contributions to public or private education are:
The members of the Houston Automobile Dealers Association elected officers. Pictured, from left, are: Bill Smith of Russell & Smith Ford-Honda in Houston, immediate past chairman; Walter Wainwright, president; Nason Feldman of Helfman Ford in Stafford, Texas, chairman; Bob Cox of Hub Buick-Hyundai in Houston, chairman-elect; Fernando Somoza of Paramount Auto Group in Houston, vice chairman; and Donnie Buckalew of Buckalew Chevrolet in Conroe, secretary-treasurer.
George Melton Sr. of Melton Honda in Southgate, Mich., receives a 25-year award for Honda from Danita Wimbush, American Honda Motor Co. senior district manager.
Lem Evans, right, of BF Evans Ford in Livermore, Ky., receives a 50-year award for Ford from David Mondragon, Ford Division Cincinnati regional sales manager. Also pictured is Anna Lou Evans, widow of B.F. Evans.
We invite news items and top-quality photographs for the dealers section from readers for our consideration. Please include your telephone number.
We prefer that 25-year dealer award photos include only two people and that 50- or 75-year dealer award photos and dealer association officer photos include no more than six people. The subjects in the photos should be posed very close together.
Send items and photos to:
