General Motors has great programs set up to reach out to and support the community. One of these programs is the Buick Achievers Scholarship. This scholarship is awarded to 100 high school seniors or undergraduate college students who excel in the classroom and their communities. They receive up to $25,000 renewable for four years. In addition, 1,000 students will receive a one-time $2,000 award.
Recently, Buick announced the first five recipients of the award. These recipients were highlighted in the Buick Human Highlight Reel Show. They include Donald Chao of Bellevue, Washington; Nicole Kennard of Acworth, Georgia; Sharnique Smith of Memphis, Tennessee; Devin Willis of Chateauguay, New York; and Benjamin Zavala of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
The remainder of the 2014 winners will be announced later. These five students represent just a small portion of the nearly 2,100 students who have received the Buick Achievers Scholarship, just since its inception in 2011. In that time, the program has given out nearly $12 million in scholarship funds.
Join with us here at Ewing Buick GMC as we congratulate these fine students and the future winners of the Buick Achievers Scholarship.
With a number of both bracket-busting games and Cinderella stories, the 2014 NCAA March Madness is full of surprises that surely inspire. Buick has recognized this and has decided to celebrate these surprises, while also promoting a surprise of their own—the 2014 Buick Regal and Regal GS.
Every year, Buick supports the NCAA and Surprising Performances Everywhere initiative. This year, Buick will sponsor an in-studio breakdown and highlight of that day’s most “Surprising Performances” during the “Inside March Madness presented by Buick” post-game show on TBS and truTV. One of the biggest surprises this season, though, comes in the form of the newly-redesigned Regal, which takes the driver to an unexpected level.
“The Regal is performance-oriented,” said Sandra Moore, Buick marketing director. “With a standard 259-horsepower turbocharged engine, the all-weather traction of available all-wheel-drive, refined ride, and quiet interior, it’s sure to surprise many—just like eventful moments of March Madness.”
If you’re interested to see just what surprises the 2014 Buick Regal has in store for you, make sure you stop by Ewing Buick GMC and see what the sedan has to offer!

Buick experienced the best February since 2006 as it experienced a 19% year-over-year increase in sales. Buick’s February sales are one for the record books as the Regal experienced an increase of 49% in year-over-year sales due to its redesign and added features. For the 2014 model year, the Regal added an all-wheel drive option, Intellilink infotainment, and advanced safety technology. Buick believes that these updates really put the Regal back on top!
Along with the Regal redesign, General Motors is proud of the big increases it saw last month thanks in part the introduction of the Encore.
