Inscription.  
Thomas Morehead is a native of Monroe, Louisiana, and a graduate of Grambling State University. Instead of a career in teaching, Morehead took a leap of faith for an uncertain shot at learning the automotive business from the ground up. In 2002, at age 40, Morehead established Sterling Motor Cars, which is now located in Virginia, Delaware, Maryland, Southern Pennsylvania, and Washington, DC. Morehead is the first African American to own several luxury dealerships, including BMW, Rolls Royce, Lamborghini, and McLaren. Prior to landing Lamborghini and McLaren, he was the first African American Rolls Royce dealer in the world. He has also added Harley-Davidson and the Mini to the list of his dealerships. His career is marked by giving back, quietly getting things done, and being the best at what he does.
