APS names Mercedes-Benz USA 2021 District Partner of the Year

Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) was named as Atlanta Public Schools 2021 Partner of The Year at its annual APyeS! Awards Reception and Ceremony. MBUSA has continued to show commitment to APS, more specifically, the engagement MBUSA has with partner schools Michael R. Hollis Innovation Academy and Leonora P. Miles Elementary School. MBUSA has brought support to APS students, teachers, and families through school supply funding, learning support and teacher childcare grant assistance.

MBUSA has partnered with non-profit Communities in Schools of Atlanta and donated over $300,000 in COVID-19 support funds to ensure APS was ready for in-person learning again. These donations also assisted families experiencing housing displacement, job loss and education challenges during remote learning.
