The Collision Repair Education Foundation announced Jim and Mike Ring of Ringbrothers are scheduled to attend the Foundation’s Cars, Careers & Celebrities event September 18th at the Chicagoland Speedway, Joliet, Ill., to meet with hundreds of high school and college collision students from over five states. Mike and Jim Ring, whose custom vehicles have been recognized with several prominent awards including the GM Design Award for Best of Show at the 2014 SEMA Show, will be presenting to the students and conducting demonstrations.
“We are thrilled to be joining the folks at the Collision Repair Education Foundation Cars, Careers & Celebrities Expo this year,” Jim Ring said. “We always enjoy talking with people who share our passion for cars and it’s always good to see the next generation be excited about working in the industry.”
Mike Ring added, “We also can’t wait to demo some of our tricks to performing award-winning body work with 3M products.”
Collision Repair Education Foundation Director of Development Brandon Eckenrode noted, “We are honored to have Mike and Jim Ring join us and talk to the attending collision students about being passionate about their work and [that] there is no limit to their career opportunities within the collision industry. This message will be heard by quite the group as we anticipate collision students to be attending from not just the greater Chicago-land area but also several other surrounding states.”
The career fair, being held in conjunction with the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup taking place that weekend, will bring together hundreds of high school and college collision students, veterans, industry employers and sponsors. In addition to raising funds for the Collision Repair Education Foundation to invest in high school and college collision repair school programs, this event will include a traditional career fair where attendees will be able to distribute resumes to industry employers, view product demonstrations, hear from special guest speakers and much more.
