Service King Collision Repair Centers announced that it hosted U.S. Representative Diane Black (R-Tennessee) for a special visit to its location in Mt. Juliet, Tenn., on Aug. 10th.
Representative Black spent the day touring the location and engaging with teammates about Service King’s recent growth and its leadership role in providing career opportunities to job seekers across the country interested in automotive repair.
“It was a privilege to tour the Service King Collision Repair facility in Mt. Juliet and meet with employees – from auto body specialists, to call center representatives, to the company’s senior leadership,” said Black. “I especially appreciated the opportunity to learn more about Service King’s pilot career training program that is offered to students at a nearby high school. While the program is still in its early phases, I know this hands-on training will be instrumental in providing young students with the skills they need to find a stable, good-paying job right out of high school. It is encouraging to see how Service King is making a significant investment in the lives of students here in middle Tennessee, and I am excited about the future of this worthwhile endeavor.”
In addition to touring Service King’s collision repair center, Black also discussed with teammates the many initiatives Service King is currently undertaking, including its Mission to Hire, the Apprentice Development Program and Nashville’s START educational program at Franklin High School.
“Our teammates were honored to host Congressman Diane Black,” said Chris Abraham, Service King CEO. “We are very proud of the impact Service King and our team is having in the state of Tennessee and the opportunities we’re providing for rewarding careers in the collision repair industry.”
Congressman Black represents Tennessee’s 6th Congressional District. She has been a small business owner, former educator and registered nurse for more than 40 years.
