Cox Automotive recently awarded its Rising Star Award to a University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) alum who is now a Kentucky auto dealership general manager and has lobbied in Washington, D.C. on behalf of the auto industry.
Wadette Bradford (’05, MA, Public Affairs) received the award for her leadership and commitment to the auto industry and the community. Cox Automotive presented the award in partnership with the National Association of Minority Automotive Dealers at the NAMAD annual meeting awards dinner in Miami.
“It felt very good to know my hard work and dedication had been noticed in such a competitive industry,” says Bradford, a native of Tuskegee who is employed by Martin Kia in Bowling Green, Ky.
