SGTC Auto Collision Repair Technology Advisory Committee Meets
The South Georgia Technical College Auto Collision Repair Technology advisory committee met recently in the new Morgan Transportation Building Conference Room on the SGTC Americus Campus.
The purpose of the advisory committee is to assist South Georgia Technical College faculty and staff in continuous quality improvement of the Auto Collision Repair Technology program. SGTC Auto Collision Repair Technology instructor Starlyn Sampson provided the committee with updates and information about program changes, enrollment, community activities, and student news.
The advisory committee members provide information to SGTC faculty and staff about suggested improvements in curriculum, new training opportunities that are available in the field of auto collision repair technology, new technology, employment/internship opportunities available for students, and salary levels students may anticipate upon graduation.
Among other topics, members discussed in length the need to get youth in the community interested in careers like Auto Collision Repair.
Members present at the advisory meeting were Henry Snipes of Lacy’s Paint and Body, Matt Kiley of NAPA Auto Parts, and Arnold Cowan of Advance Auto Parts. SGTC Dean for Academic Affairs Dr. David Finley was also present at the meeting.
The advisory committee is a crucial link that provides an avenue for South Georgia Tech instructors to learn about changing conditions or technology in the workplace that can then be passed along to students that will enable them to be fully prepared upon graduation.
