HENNEPIN TECH STUDENTS AWARDED SCHOLARSHIPS AND GRANTS FROM I-CAR COLLISION REPAIR EDUCATION FOUNDATION
Hennepin Tech has announced that two students in the Auto Body Collision Technology program have been awarded scholarships from the I-CAR Collision Repair Education Foundation. In addition, an HTC Auto Body Collision Technology instructor and student are recipients of an Alcoa/Collision Repair Education Foundation aluminum repair training grant.
Zach Reisner of Plymouth, Minn., is the winner of the 2013 Board of Trustees Scholarship, which provides $2,000 for continuing his education in collision repair. Antonio Fondren of Brooklyn Park, Minn., is the winner of the 2013 Lon Baudoux Legacy Scholarship, which provides $1,000 to be used for continuing his education in collision repair. The two HTC students were chosen based on written essays and instructor recommendations.
“It’s great to see our students receive recognition, as well as financial support for their educational goals,” said Ron Furchner, instructor in HTC’s Auto Body Collision Technology program. “These scholarships will help Zach and Antonio prepare for successful careers in the industry.”
HTC Instructor Tom Phillips and student Josh Hagle of Lindstrom, Minn., have been awarded an Alcoa/Collision Repair Education Foundation aluminum repair training grant and will attend a two-day specialized training program at the I-CAR Tech Centre in Appleton, Wis., in July. The instructor-student team was chosen based on their written essays and collision repair knowledge and skills.
“Attending the training program is a great opportunity to gain new skills and learn the latest repair techniques, which we can then share with students at the college” said Tom Phillips, who has been an instructor at HTC for 13 years. HTC’s Auto Body Collision Technology program offers an A.A.S. degree, as well as diplomas and occupational certificates.
