CACC's Automotive Technology program welcomed a new partnership this year with Big O Tires! Just down the road from the career center, the Big O partnership will give students the opportunity to apply their automotive skills in a real-world work environment, along with giving students the chance to earn scholarships for their post-secondary education.
"This partnership makes complete sense for us," said Auto Tech instructor Johnny Green. "Our program curriculum is very similar to what Big O does, like work on brakes, alignment, tire service and repair, and routine services. This will be great for our kids and we're very thankful Big O approached us with this idea."
The details of the agreement are that Big O offers CACC students internships, job shadowing experiences, field trips, and a $1000 scholarship for a student pursuing post-secondary education in the automotive technology industry, and a $500 scholarship for their second year of education.
CACC looks forward to a great relationship with Big O!
