During the meeting, the committee proudly donated $7,500 to Tennessee College of Applied Technology (TCAT) of Morristown and $7,500 to TCAT of Greenville.
Fran Stidham, education chair for the Knoxville I-CAR Committee, stated, “This would not be possible without our sponsors for our annual golf tournament. These types of events help bridge the gap between different industry segments and are an important way for the entire automotive and collision repair industry to support students entering the field.”
The meeting also featured a presentation by I-CAR’s Tom McFinch about the organization’s new format for designations and pro levels. “Attendees asked good questions, and Tom gave informative responses,” Stidham said. “We had a good turnout but would always like to see more industry professionals in attendance.”
