Florida Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran recently honored Braman Motorcars for its support of the School District of Palm Beach County. In an awards ceremony at the Wyndham Grand Resort in Orlando, the 2019 Commissioners Business Recognition Award was presented as a result of Braman’s teacher and school-related employees of the year awards ceremonies for the past three years.
“This event is our way of recognizing business leaders who honor the role they play in ensuring that our school children will carry the torch of freedom and excellence for future generations,” Corcoran said. “Our students and their future employers will benefit greatly from your generosity.”
Braman Motorcars Marketing Manager Daniel Bayard accepted the award on behalf of General Manager Stephen Grossman.
“The development of our youth is paramount to the long-term success and development of our community,” Grossman said. “We plan to support the school district’s five-year strategic plan and lead by example so that other county businesses see the potential to invest in our collective futures through our public school system.”
This year, Braman Motorcars awarded 2019 School-Related Employee of the Year Annette Blanco and 2019 Teacher of the Year Daniella Boyd fully paid leases for brand-new BMW X1s from Braman BMW.
This is the third year that educators have been gifted BMWs by Braman, which has enabled the program to increase the participation rate among teachers and school-related employees nominated by their peers.
“As in the business community, providing incentives for higher performance has the tendency to lift all within the organization to new heights of performance. In this case, better educating our youth,” Grossman said. “Teachers and employees vying for the recognition has nearly tripled from the first year that we decided to be involved in this outstanding program.”
For more than 30 years, Braman Motorcars has been providing South Florida with a world-class luxury automotive experience. With locations in West Palm Beach and Jupiter, Braman is an authorized dealer for Bentley, BMW, MINI, Porsche and Rolls-Royce automobiles.
