Maxwell High School Holds Open House during April CIC Meeting in Atlanta

From CollisionWeek

The Collision Repair Education Foundation will be hosting an open house event at Maxwell High School of Technology in Lawrenceville, Ga. on Wednesday April 8th, from 9-10:30 a.m. in recognition of the 2013 Makeover school grant that was provided by the I-CAR Atlanta Volunteer Committee.

This event will be taking place in conjunction with the Collision Industry Conference (CIC) meetings being held at the Crowne Plaza Ravinia that week. Hertz Corp will be providing transportation for CIC attendees to and from the hotel and the school so that industry members can see how the grant has transformed Maxwell’s collision program. Industry guests will be transported back to the Crowne Plaza in time for the CIC meetings that begin that afternoon.

Atlanta I-CAR Chairman Gerry Poirier and Farmers Insurance National APD Manager said, “The Atlanta I CAR Committee is made up from all aspects of the collision industry. The ability to accomplish our successful fundraising is due to the dedication of each and every member. This dedication has resulted in our ability to give back to this great industry by providing the 2013 Makeover grant to Maxwell High School of Technology, scholarships for collision school students along with materials and tools. This will help replenish our dwindling shortage of people coming into the collision repair field. I encourage all industry members to come out and see what can be done to promote the collision industry starting in our local schools.”

Maxwell High School of Technology Principal Dr. Jeff Hall noted, “I-CAR and the Education Foundation continue to be one of Maxwell’s biggest supporters. They continually provide tools and equipment that enhances our industry-certified program in teaching students how to perform automotive vehicle body repair and refinishing skills. As you know, these skills lead to excellent jobs as an estimator, body repair technician, refinishing technician, or employment in a shop office or insurance claims office. Our instructor’s aptitude and desire to produce quality student work, in and out of the classroom, can only be enhanced with the industry’s support of our program. With the industry’s continued support and the hard work of our instructors, Mr. Butch Luther and Mr. Sam Melaragno, I believe our program is in the top cadre of Auto Collision programs nationwide. We sincerely thank I-CAR and the Education Foundation for its belief in a strong education program for our students.”

Maxwell High School also recently received its second annual contribution from the Georgia Collision Industry Association.

Collision repair industry members are asked to RSVP by March 27th for the open house by emailing Brandon Eckenrode at Brandon.Eckenrode@ed-foundation.org.
