CCC Information Services has provided a $30,000 monetary donation for scholarships and grants for schools that applied for the Ultimate Collision Education Makeover grant. The grants will be awarded at the Collision Repair Education Foundation Industry Reception during SEMA 2014 and will go towards the purchase of classroom materials to enhance the collision program’s facility and to create a better learning environment for the students.
“CCC Information Services has been a longtime supporter of the Foundation, and they truly understand the importance of education at career and technical schools,” said Clark Plucinski, executive director of the Collision Repair Education Foundation. “These grants will allow schools to equip a collision classroom that will make students proud and will enhance their education, thereby producing better entry-level collision employees. Thank you to the team at CCC for continuing to be leaders in the industry.”
Added Joseph Allen, GM of CCC’s automotive service group, “CCC is very proud of its longstanding relationship with the Collision Repair Education Foundation. We share a commitment to advancing the automotive collision repair industry through education and access to the latest technologies available. We’re excited to once again help deserving schools equip their facilities with the tools students need to thrive in the classroom and prepare for their future in collision repair.”
