2010 CREF Grant Winner Provides Update on Lasting Impact


...envision their future in an industry dedicated to their success.


CREF’s mission aligns around these efforts, and Cornia believes CREF plays a critical role in supporting the next generation of industry professionals.


“Students are the future of the collision repair industry. The students taught by your local schools will become the industry’s next collision technicians," he said. "When the programs’ instructors are able to teach students on modern equipment, when we’re able to teach the most innovative ideas and products, this ensures that we are shaping the industry’s future in the right way, that we’re educating students who will become excellent entry-level technicians.”


Of course, schools aren’t the only ones in this equation who face budgetary constraints, and Cornia noted, “The Collision Repair Education Foundation also makes it possible for students with financial challenges to be able to afford to continue in school programs. The foundation facilitates the industry’s generosity by finding those who are willing to help by offering grants to students that stand out in the industry or struggle financially. CREF’s efforts makes the collision industry stronger!”


Industry members interested in getting involved and supporting the Collision Repair Education Foundation’s efforts to assist secondary and post-secondary collision repair training programs should contact info@ed-foundation.org.
