Lake Chevrolet Buick GMC in Devils Lake recently donated a 2012 Chevrolet Equinox to the Lake Region State College Automotive Technology program.
The vehicle will be used for student learning with electrical and other technology.
“Lake Chevrolet spotted an opportunity to assist in student education with this vehicle,” said Jim Jacobsen, Lake Chevrolet Service Technician and member of the LRSC Automotive Technology Advisory Board.
Throughout the years, industry representatives from businesses like Lake Chevrolet and its parent company, Bergstrom Cars, play a pivotal role with the Automotive Technology program.
“Lake Region State College and Lake Chevrolet have a long history and partnership,” said Renard Bergstrom, owner of Bergstrom Cars.
That’s where donations like the Equinox come about.
“Those working in the industry can serve as members of the program’s advisory board. Board members see firsthand the skillsets students are learning and provide valuable input for program curriculum,” said LRSC President Dr. Doug Darling.
Numerous graduates from LRSC’s Automotive Technology program find careers at Lake Chevrolet and other Bergstrom Cars’ locations (Could we type out- Marketplace Ford Lincoln and Lake Toyota after the locations? Or does that seem funny?).
