"The Collision Repair Education Foundation is a
valuable organization, and we’re pleased to support future industry
technicians," said Terry Fortner, vice president of industry relations and
market development for LKQ. "With all the advances in materials,
technology and procedures, it’s important that schools have access to the latest
techniques and products to teach how to safely repair vehicles. The training
efforts of these schools are recognized and appreciated by LKQ


Scott Kruger, executive director of the Collision Repair
Education Foundation, stated, "LKQ’s support will not only fund our
activities investing in collision repair school programs nationwide, it will
also put their products that are used by industry professionals every day into
the hands of students learning the trade. Through these schools completing the
2010 makeover grant application, we were able to identify their collision
programs’ equipment needs. On behalf of the staff, Board of Trustees and the
schools receiving the donation, we would like to thank LKQ for their continued
support of the industry’s future."


Added Joe Indomenico, collision instructor at Lake
Technical Center, "We would like to thank LKQ for their support of our
collision program. We’ll be getting parts for students to practice on, and we’re going to set up front ends on a stand and use them for paint
