Community Star: Teaching kids on and off the field

Each quarter, AutoNation selects associates who have demonstrated an above and beyond desire to help those less fortunate in the communities we serve. In their honor, we will donate either $500 for individual efforts or $1,000 for team efforts to their charities. To read more Community Star features, click here.

Football and baseball are BIG in Texas – especially in the town of Forney where Bankston Chevrolet of Dallas Service Advisor Jason Raglin serves as a Youth Sports Commissioner. Jason, who has worked at Bankston for 13 years, has overseen Forney’s youth football and baseball teams for six years and coaches his son’s football team, the Red Raiders.

“We teach the children more than just football or baseball skills,” said Jason. “We teach them sportsmanship and that good grades are more important than sports. Sometimes, we even serve as father figures to some of the boys.”

Many Bankston customers have children in Forney’s youth sports leagues. “Kids love Jason and so do the parents because he is fair,” said Jennifer Stevens, president of the Forney Football League.

Over the years, Jason has helped Bankston Chevrolet get involved in the community through golf tournaments, fundraisers and sales of league t-shirts.

We’re proud to recognize Jason as an AutoNation Community Star. AutoNation will donate $500 in Jason’s name to the Forney Youth Sports Leagues.

Thank you, Jason, for all the great work you do.
