LRCC Students Wins $1,000 Scholarship

Lakes Region Community College congratulates Samuel Ouellette on being the recipient of a $1000 ACDelco Scholarship.  Sam is a General Motors Automotive Service Educational Program (GM ASEP) student sponsored by Valley Motors in Frenchville, Maine.  He was awarded the scholarship for filming, starring in and editing a video documenting why he wants to be a GM ASEP automotive technician and why he uses genuine ACDelco parts in all his repairs.

In his submission video, Ouellette described his passion for automobiles and the reasons why the GM ASEP’s unique curriculum combining classroom and real-world dealership experiences was a great fit for him. For Ouellette, the program has provided a “positive and productive” learning environment where he has worked on actual customer vehicles dealing with real-life customer concerns. Ouellette is a first-round winner and, thus far, the only Lakes Region Community College student to receive an award.

ACDelco is marking its 100th anniversary this year by offering one hundred $1,000 scholarships to students in GM ASEP programs. GM ASEP Coordinator and LRCC Professor, Jamie Decato, has been encouraging his students to apply and was pleased to learn that one of the first recipients was an LRCC student. ACDelco is still awarding scholarships and the final announcements will be made through August 16th.  Congratulations, Sam!  For more information on the GM ASEP Program, visit www.lrcc.edu/academics/asep.
