LITTLETON, Colo. (Nov. 14, 2013) – The Arapahoe Community College Automotive Technology Program has received a $2,500 grant from The Chrysler Foundation.

“Our most sincere thanks to The Chrysler Foundation for this generous grant,” said Jerry Viola, Director of Automotive Technology at ACC. “This investment will be a tremendous asset to our students and facility.”

The grant is designated to be used for the 2013 Chrysler College Automotive Program (CAP) to purchase shop equipment, computers and storage systems for specialty tools and supplies. Funds may also be allocated for developing curriculum and lesson plans, and to conduct career day recruiting fairs.

ACC’s nationally-recognized Automotive Technology program was named “2011 School of the Year” by Tomorrow’s Technician magazine. Furthermore, ACC Automotive Technology students have won first place at the Colorado SkillsUSA State Leadership and Skills Conference six times in the past eight years. Registration is now open for the upcoming Spring 2014 semester at ACC.
