JCC receives Ford Mustang to help automotive students
Jackson Community College received a generous donation of a 2010 Mustang GT Convertible from Ford Motor Company for automotive students to use in their studies.
The car, which has a sticker price of $40,000, was donated for JCC students enrolled in the Ford Maintenance and Light Repair (MLR) program, which prepares students for work in a Ford dealership repair shop. The Mustang will be used for demonstrations and testing of all automotive systems, said Chris Kaser, automotive instructor. The vehicle sustained some minor damage and cannot be sold to the public or driven on the street, however, everything works making it a perfect training vehicle. Ford has donated 10 cars and trucks in support of JCC's automotive technology program.
JCC offers associate degree and certificate programs in automotive service technology, as well the Ford Maintenance and Light Repair (MLR). JCC has 23 automotive classes, and new classroom space in the recently renovated Justin Whiting Hall. Learn more about the program at www.jccmi.edu, or call 517.787.0800.
