Wednesday, October 14th, 2020

Ford Motor Co. donated two vehicles to Spartanburg Community College for students in the college’s Ford Automotive Student Service Educational Training program. The F-150 pickup and Fusion are part of the college’s Ford ASSET fleet, which is used by students to learn while working as they pursue careers at automotive technicians.

“Automotive technicians are in high demand with an extreme shortage of people with the necessary skills to diagnose and repair the complex vehicles that are on the road today,” Mark Smith, program director for the SCC Ford ASSET program, said in a news release. “These two vehicles were donated to SCC by Ford Motor Co. to keep our program up to date with current technology. By having the ASSET program at SCC we are helping meet the demand in industry by training to Ford’s standards and providing certified technicians to their dealerships.”
