On August 18, Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama(HMMA) demonstrated its continued support for education and safe driving today by providing 2012 Sonatas and 2012 Elantras for use in driver’s education programs in three Alabama county high schools. Bullock, Macon and Montgomery Counties High Schools received the vehicles at the Hyundai Alabama plant. Over 1,600 students per year will benefit from the use of these vehicles in their driver’s safety programs. The new sedans replace 2006 Sonata sedans that were loaned to the high schools in 2006. “We understand there is a great need for new vehicles in the public school safe driving programs and are pleased to continue to provide these vehicles to assist in Alabama’s drivers-ed programs,” said Y.D. Lim, President and Chief Executive Officer of HMMA. “This donation is a part of our continuing efforts to support education in Alabama.” School driver education programs are essential in developing today’s students into tomorrow’s safe, courteous and defensive drivers,” said Rick Neal, vice president Administration and General Counsel.
