Start More than a Car

In 2011, Friends of Educational Excellence participated in the Ford Motor Company "Start More Than a Car" campaign to promote the 2012 Ford Focus and Friends of Educational Excellence. Jason Pollock, the son of Friends of Educational Excellence Executive Director, Bruce Pollock, was one of 40 social media marketing consultants selected by Ford to promote the 2012 Ford Focus. As part of this social media marketing campaign, Jason select Friends of Educational Excellence to receive a generous grant from Ford. Jason attended the Ford Focus Global Test Drive campaign kick-off in Madrid, Spain in February 2011 (Episode 1 below). Afterward, Bruce and Jason worked together to produce 2 more videos to highlight and promote Friends of Educational Excellence (Episodes 2 and 3).
