2-26-19 — Technical Center Receives Car Donation

Feb. 26, 2019 ~ Students enrolled at the Olathe Advanced Technical Center (OATC) will be the beneficiary of student and staff training and a car on which students can learn.

Ford Tech Placement Specialist Marcus Hicks is a member of the Business Advisory Board for the OATC and worked to secure the Ford Online training package to students and staff. In addition, Hicks worked with Ford Corporate to secure a car donation for additional educational opportunities.

“We are honored to receive this car as it will provide our students with an opportunity to work with newer automotive technology,” OATC Administrator Amy Stolz said. “We are so appreciative of all that Ford and Olathe Ford have provided to our instructors and students.”

The OATC will host a ceremony highlighting the donation at 1:30 p.m. Friday, March 1.
