GM Donates Corvette


Lakes Region Community College (LRCC) is the recipient of a 2015 Corvette Stingray donated by General Motors (GM), one of the world’s largest automotive manufacturers.

The Corvette Stingray is the second Corvette donated to LRCC and will be used to train aspiring technicians enrolled in GM’s Automotive Service Educational Program (ASEP).  

“As a 2004 graduate of LRCC’s GM Automotive Service Education Program, says Derek, “I can attest first hand to the value of learning and practicing our craft on donated GM vehicles with the latest technology.”

“We are proud to support training programs that prepare the next generation of automotive technicians,” said Rick Jackson, manager for GM ASEP. “Our commitment to our customers goes well beyond building a quality product. Our dedication to excellence starts at the training level by partnering with schools in communities around the globe to share our collective passion for the automotive industry and educate, inspire and motivate the technicians of tomorrow.”

“LRCC plays an important role in helping the auto industry fill a critical need: developing and retaining skilled automotive technicians.  This generous donation from GM enables us to deliver the highest quality education to our students” noted Michael Parker.
