Local Dealerships Donate Car to ATCC

Career Center staff and students stand in front of a donated vehicle

On Friday, June 28 2019 at 11:00 AM Whitson Morgan Motor Company and Cogswell Motors donated a vehicle to the Arkansas Tech Career Center’s (ATCC) automotive program. The Ford Automotive Career Exploration (ACE) program provided this donation. The ACE program is a grassroots process that takes existing automotive students from their classroom, grooms them in the service department of a Ford dealership, and offers them an internship where they learn entry-level skills and the dealership’s culture. Through the ACE program, participation schools receive donations such as web-based curriculum, engines and even vehicles. Both Cogswells & Whitson Morgan have worked diligently with ATCC to ensure the quality future of the next generation of automotive professionals.
