Davis-Moore Endowed Scholarship

Davis-Moore Auto Group has a long history of community involvement, beginning with founders Theodore"Grant" Davis Jr. and Bob Moore. Over the past 50 years, Davis-Moore has become Kansas' largest auto group based on the tradition of hard work, customer service and commitment to community. Organizational support includes The United Way, Make-A-Wish Foundation and Habitat for Humanity, as well as many others. In keeping with the fostering of community ties, Davis-Moore Auto Group established the Davis-Moore Endowed Scholarship in 2004. Dawson Grimsley, president, general manager and owner of Davis-Moore, believes, "Today"s students are tomorrow's leaders." An advocate of three principles in community involvement: participate, volunteer and donate, Mr. Grimsley, and his partners, have ensured the future of community leadership. This scholarship will "benefit deserving students for generations to come."
