Rick Hendrick donates sweatshirts and spirit shirts to all CEWN students

The students of C.E. Williams North (CEW), 6th grade campus, are keeping warm this fall thanks to the school’s business sponsor, Rick Hendrick BMW and MINI of Charleston. Every sixth grade Wolverine was given a CEW sweatshirt and CEW Spirit T-shirt.


Principal Maite Porter recognized a need for students to have uniform appropriate outerwear. She reached out to Rick Hendrick and they generously responded.


The generosity doesn’t stop there. “This is our fourth year working with Rick Hendrick BMW and MINI of Charleston” Principal Porter proudly states. “They've supported our campus in many ways to include supporting our faculty and staff with appreciation events, donating Thanksgiving dinners for our school and West Ashley community, donating 500 sweatshirts, and more.”


Rick Hendrick’s Shelia Thomasson is excited about the partnership as well. “We had a great time cooking out for the staff to kick off the year!” She continues, “Rick Hendrick BMW and MINI of Charleston are thrilled to include the Teacher of the Year and Principal Porter in some of our monthly employee celebrations and look forward to opportunities to welcome students and staff to the dealership for visits to learn about the automotive industry.”
