Mergenthaler Vocational Technical High School (Mervo) teamed up with Vehicles for Change for two car awards. The students worked on the cars that were donated to Vehicles for Change (VFC) through the Mervo automotive training program and then handed over the keys to the two highly deserving recipients. 

Christopher was one of the car recipients, who was just recently hired at HMC, Inc. Karen, CEO at HMC, spoke about her new hire and how valuable he has become to the organization but also recognized that Christopher has had a hard time making it work on time consistently because of his difficult commute from Baltimore to Columbia. It takes him an hour and a half coming and going and includes several bus rides. The students also handed over keys to car recipient Kyeonia, a Center for Urban Families (CFUF) Strive program alumnus, who is now employed in the medical field. Kyeonia's life will also be greatly improved now that she has a car.
