State Farm Insurance Company donated a 2012 Chevrolet Sonic to the Automotive Mechanics and Collision Repair Programs to assist the students in learning how to diagnose and repair both mechanical as well as body damage on the late model vehicle.

Students with this experience and expertise are better able to market their skills when they graduate and seek employment in the auto mechanics and auto body repair careers.

State Farm’s support of the Automotive Mechanics and Collision Repair program is consistent with their long-term commitment to education. Collision Repair and Auto Mechanics are important to State Farm customers because cars today are increasingly high-tech, computerized machines that require a high level of skill, quality education to repair is essential. It is critical to have student entering the field and learning the latest repair methods to be able to provide remarkable service to our customers.
