Dec 03, 2019 At Age 81, Gloria Hicks is Leading the Way
Gloria Hicks is something special. At 81 years old, she still goes to work every day at our Mercedes-Benz store in Corpus Christi, TX. But, that’s just a side note, really. The actual story here is about her commitment to the community, especially one local elementary school where she shares her love of reading through the DEAR (Drop Everything and Read) program.
Gloria has been volunteering at the school for nearly a decade. This year, she invited some of her Southern Region teammates, including Mike Nolte, Nichole Harris, LaDonna Mason and Damon Blakemore, to join her as she read to students at…Gloria Hicks Elementary School.
You see, it’s not just the reading. She has made such a difference in the lives of students the school and the DEAR program are named after her. When Gloria arrives at the school to volunteer, children line up to hug her. Every year, Gloria also ensures that 700 students at her namesake school also receive a Christmas present.
Thank you, Gloria, for your commitment to the community! Now, that’s really the best or nothing.
