Texas College Receives Grant for Collision Repair Equipment
Nov. 15, 2018—Texas State Technical College's Auto Collision and Management Technology program will soon buy new equipment because of a recently awarded national grant.
The program has received a $1,000 Ultimate Collision Education Makeover Grant from the Collision Repair Education Foundation. The announcement was made in late October at the 2018 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. The money will be available in January.
Clint Campbell, TSTC's statewide auto collision and management technology chair, said it took two months to complete the application, which includes information on the program's budget and student job placement, as well as recommendations from industry representatives.
