Second-year students working toward an associate of applied science degree in SLCC’s automotive technician program will be able to earn six credit hours by taking the Roger L. Miller Automotive Internship Class. There are currently no restrictions on the number of students.

Through the ongoing class, which begins this summer, students will work in paid and unpaid internships at a variety of participating companies and receive at least 180 hours of on-the-job training. Students will need to meet specific requirements before taking part in the class.

Roger, the son of Gail and the late Larry H. Miller, was “instrumental and inspirational” in the creation of the class, according to Rick Bouillon, dean of SLCC’s School of Technical Specialties. “His vision for on-the-job, real world training will have lasting, positive effects for those seeking a career in automotive technology,” said Bouillon.

“Roger inherited his father’s passion for cars, racing and business,” said Gail Miller, owner of the Larry H. Miller Group of Companies. “I know that he would be so pleased to see his vision for this course come to fruition. His wife Cheri and I look forward to supporting this program and students who enroll by encouraging their interest in automotive industry careers.”

Dr. Huftalin will make a formal announcement of the internship program on April 16 at 1:30 p.m. at the college’s Larry H. Miller Campus, 9750 S. 300 West, Sandy, in the Miller Free Enterprise Center Showroom.
