Local Car Club gives grant for High School Automotive Students Exposure to College Automotive Programs

Edison Academy Automotive Collision and Automotive Technology students will be taking a tour of the Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA) Automotive Program labs and meeting with instructors and current students on Tuesday, April 8th, thanks to a grant provided by the members of the Old Dominion Region Vintage Chevrolet Car Club of America (ODR VCCA). Funding this trip allowed the ODR VCCA to impact the lives of young people, helping students to see the bridge between high school and higher education and training in a field in which they have an interest. This trip will also help to educate students about the vintage car club and lead to future opportunities to partner so that these two groups who share an interest in automobiles are able to collaborate together.
