ORANGE COUNTY – Ford Motor Company (Ford) invited 120 elementary and middle school at-risk students to visit its Irvine design facilities Friday, Dec. 6, 2013, as an incentive for positive behavior, perfect attendance, and staying out of gangs. To earn this reward, the students met a challenge to have no unexcused absences, criminal activity or arrests, violence or weapons on campus, and gang-related clothing, writing, or behavior.
During their visit to the Ford Irvine headquarters, students will be among the first to see the all-new Ford Mustang which will have debuted globally on Dec. 5, 2013. They will spend time with Ford’s design team learning about the studio design process of concept cars including the Shelby Cobra Concept, Bronco Concept, Start Concept, Bullitt Mustang, and the Hot Wheels Transit Connect and will also interact with Ford employees in a variety of games and activities with prizes. Lunch will be provided courtesy of Taco Bell. Continue reading
