Representatives from Luther Automotive Group donated a 2015 Jeep Liberty to Hudson High School’s Technology Education department so students in automotive classes have a newer model vehicle to use for instruction.
Matthew Carlson, Service Specialist with Luther, spoke to students in Mr. Hovland’s class about Luther’s Tech Trac Student Sponsorship Program. Tech Trac is dedicated to supporting Technical College students with the passion and ambition to become an automotive technician. Students who qualify are provided financial support to complete a 2-year certificate or degree and paid, part-time work at a Luther dealership with a fast-track transition to full-time employment once the student has completed certification. Qualifying students are also eligible for a tool grant of up to $2,000. Learn more about Luther’s Tech Trac program at: https://www.lutherauto.com/techtrac.htm
Also present were Superintendent Nick Ouellette who spoke briefly about his tech ed background and the opportunities afforded students who are interested in the trades. Luther Chevrolet Hudson’s Service Manager, Steve Boyd (a Hudson High School alumni), spoke about the need for automotive technicians and if students wished to pursue a career in transportation, there will always be work.
Much thanks to Luther Automotive Group for their support as a community partner in education!
