Three Schools Benefit from Honda Donation to Collision Repair Education Foundation
Three schools recently received $36,000 through the Collision Repair Education Foundation to help fulfill a wish list of needed tools, equipment and supplies for the collision repair programs at these schools. The funds were donated to the Collision Repair Education Foundation by Honda.
The following schools are recipients of the award made possible by the Ultimate Collision Education Makeover grant:
• Cerritos College (Norwalk, Calif.)
• Fayetteville Technical Community College (Fayetteville, N.C.)
• Ranken Technical College (St. Louis, Mo.)
These schools are part of Honda’s Professional Automotive Career Training Program (PACT) designed to provide students with real-world automotive repair education and training.
PACT instructors help provide an opportunity for students to receive technical and “soft skill” instruction and an opportunity to do a paid internship in a Honda or Acura Dealership service department during their two years in the program.
“American Honda is proud to support the Collision Repair Education Foundation’s efforts to provide resources for deserving collision repair schools nationwide,” said Tammy Elliot, assistant vice president of Service Marketing & Operations for American Honda. “We’re especially proud that three of our PACT schools were grant recipients. The tools and equipment they acquire through these grants will help guarantee that their graduates have the skills needed to repair today’s cars.”
