Charitable Project at Western Nevada College Leads to ‘Recycled Rides’ Auto Body Class

Last fall, auto body students and instructors at Western Nevada College created a new class dedicated to repairing vehicles for Carson City, NV residents in need. Introduction to Auto Collision Technology will be offered this spring through the college’s non-credit Continuing Education program, reported

Students who take the $100-per-semester class will restore a late-model vehicle that will become part of the NABC Recycled Rides program. WNC partnered with Recycled Rides and Capital City Circles Initiative to restore a Chevrolet Cobalt in automotive collision and automotive refinishing classes, according to

It was then donated to a local family before Christmas. The class provides a unique opportunity for auto body students and faculty to work along side other industry professionals. Not to mention, they get to help people in need in the process by repairing and donating vehicles to individuals and service organizations.

The class, which began on January 21, is open to students who are at least 16 years old. It will be directed by Mark Leonard and Joseph Ouellette, meeting 2:30-5:30 p.m. on Wednesdays, reported
