High Country Toyota, one of the area’s leading Toyota dealerships with a long history of community involvement, has recently donated $15,000 to the Scottsboro City School District.

This donation will assist Scottsboro City Schools current SRO campaign, Safer Schools = Safe Students which launched January 2019 with the City of Scottsboro and Scottsboro Water Sewer and Gas allows customers within the community contribute a monthly donation to support the SRO program. The Scottsboro Board of Education believes it’s crucial to have additional SRO’s to provide protection for all of its students and schools.

Scottsboro City Schools, Superintendent, Dr. Jose Reyes Jr. said, “It is imperative that we work proactively to protect our children and staff every day. We are forever grateful to our citizens of Scottsboro who contribute monthly but, also our local businesses who also contribute unselfishly. Community partnerships, like High Country Toyota are greatly appreciated, needed and very important to Scottsboro City Schools. Currently, Scottsboro City Schools lack adequate funding to provide additional SROs in all schools.”

Alan Cox, High Country Toyota general manager noted, “When I first met dealership owner, Steve Ayers, I knew our goals aligned. He not only wanted the dealership to be known as the area’s most successful in terms of sales, but also as one that is striving to help make it a better place to live. I am honored that we are able to do our part to help the local school district. Special thanks to Scottsboro City School Superintendent Dr. Jose Reyes Jr., School Resource Officer Lee Benson and Community Engagement Coordinator, Carrie Bradford for all of their help and dedication to making our schools better and safer. We challenge all area business to join us in this effort to stand up for our kids.” 

High Country Toyota serves Albertville, Anniston, Fort Payne, Gadsden, Guntersville, Scottsboro and Madison and has consistently been involved in the local communities, offering sponsorship opportunities to various charities and civic organizations.

Cox added, “Also among Steve’s many community efforts is animal advocacy and helping to provide families with loving pets, which also enhances our quality of life.

Towards that end, he founded and underwrites Safe Haven animal rescue facility, which has become one of the area’s most beloved animal advocacy facilities.”
