Today GM and JeffCars.com made history together. This is the first time any automaker has combined an on-campus ride-and-drive with a car-buying financial literacy clinic, educating minority students on the ins and outs of the car-buying process. Today's event was held at Atlanta Metropolitan State College. Not only did we connect students to the automotive industry, we exposed them to different careers and encouraged them to be socially-conscious consumers, too. GM is one of the few automakers that truly have connected with the minority community.
