The Collision Repair Education Foundation announced that Ellicottville Career & Technical Center is the recipient of the CCC Information Services’ Classroom Enhancement Grant. Ellicottville will receive a $10,000 grant that will assist the school with collision-related classroom materials such as electronics, classroom furniture, and other items to ensure the students have a professional learning environment. Ellicottville was eligible for this award by applying for the 2014 Collision Repair Education Foundation’s Ultimate Collision Education Makeover grant.
“To prepare today’s students for a career in collision repair requires hands-on training with the latest tools and in an atmosphere that is modern and professional,” said Joseph Allen, GM, CCC’s Automotive Services Group. “CCC is excited to award Ellicottville Career & Technical Center with the Classroom Enhancement grant and to support the next generation of professionals in their educational pursuits.”
Collision Repair Education Foundation Director of Development Brandon Eckenrode noted, “Many collision classrooms across the country are in dire need of being modernized in order to provide a quality technical education to their students. Through CCC’s grant, we are able to help an instructor take their classroom to a higher level and ensure that the collision students have a proper and up-to-date learning environment.”
