Pecheles Automotive Group has sponsored the Winner’s Circle Breakfast for the 14th consecutive year and has donated more than $65,000 toward student scholarships and College of Health & Human Performance events during that time.

The annual event recognizes donors and scholarship recipients in the College of Health and Human Performance at ECU.

Olivia Hancock, a Fayetteville native majoring in recreational therapy at East Carolina University, recently received the Pecheles Automotive Group scholarship during the Winner’s Circle Breakfast at Rock Springs Center.

“The scholarship is a tremendous honor to start my senior year at ECU,” Hancock said. “It’s going to enable me to continue succeeding in my academics, as well as provide some financial relief for myself and my family.”

“We receive many opportunities to partner with organizations in our community,” said Brian Pecheles, president of Pecheles Automotive. “This event, however, is one of the most special. We feel honored to be asked to work with such a hard-working group of people. Every year, we continue to be amazed and inspired by these students, who work so hard and are so deserving of this honor.”

The College of Health and Human Performance includes a vast assortment of academic departments: The School of Social Work, Department of Human Development & Family Science, Department of Interior Design & Merchandising, Department of Recreation & Leisure Studies, Department of Kinesiology, Department of Health Education & Promotion, Air Force ROTC, and Army ROTC. More than 130 scholarships, totaling more than $150,000, were awarded within the college this year.

“We are very grateful for all of the hard work and effort that goes into making this event such a success each year,” Dr. Susan McCammon, interim dean of the College of Health & Human Performance, said. “We could not make this possible without all of our donors and benefactors. Every year, we are able to acknowledge a growing group of deserving students. Pecheles Automotive graciously suggested and provided a larger venue this year, to allow us to accommodate everyone and make this day truly special for all”.

Pecheles Automotive Group is comprised of three dealerships representing eight brands: Joe Pecheles Volkswagen-Hyundai-Genesis-Mitsubishi and Audi Greenville in Greenville, Pecheles Ford-Toyota in Washington, and Pecheles Honda in New Bern.
