TSTC Collision Program Receives Service King Grant TSTC

Texas State Technical College's Auto Collision and Management Technology program celebrated the end of the fall semester at its barbecue on Thursday, Dec. 5.

Representatives of Service King presented program faculty with a $5,000 2019 Service King School Grant through the Collision Repair Education Foundation.

 

Clint Campbell, TSTC's statewide auto collision and management technology chair, said the grant is an opportunity to purchase equipment the program's budget cannot cover.

 

Roy Villarreal, Service King's apprenticeship development director in Richardson, said the company looks forward to partnering with the program on its curriculum and other needs.

 

"The end goal is to have that easy, smooth transition for the graduates to go into one of our shops," he said.

 

Campbell said future work with Service King can enlighten students on how much they are needed in the auto collision and management field.
