Mike Whatley of Mike Whatley Honda in Brookhaven presented a donation to Co-Lin Foundation executive director DJ Preiss on behalf of Ally Financial for Co-Lin’s Automotive Technology program. Whatley was recently selected as a nominee for the 2017 TIME Dealer of the Year award, which recognizes the nation’s most successful auto dealers who also demonstrate a long-standing commitment to community service. As part of that honor, nominees are able to select a nonprofit organization to receive financial support.
