The Indiana Autobody Association (IABA) donated $500 to Hoosier Hills Career Center at the association’s Bloomington, Ind., chapter meeting.
IABA Treasurer Debbie Moore (Diamond Collision) and board member Max Bland (Minton Body Shop) presented a $500 check to Hoosier Hills Career Center’s Collision Repair program.
The director of the program, John Paul, received the check. He plans to use the funds to provide a safer, more productive environment for his students.
With the growing need for new technicians, the IABA plans to increase its support of schools within the state that provide a platform for students who want to be next-generation collision repair employees. Several members are heavily involved with their local vocational schools.
