Two Okanagan College students from the Automotive Service Technician (AST) program received a boost to their toolboxes last week.
The Okanagan Mopars Car Club donated two gift certificates valued at $500 each for local automotive tool retailers.
AST students Dallas Holzer and James McLeod were chosen to receive the awards; both were surprised and delighted to learn about this generous gift. Both heartily expressed their gratitude to the Club for its support.
Holzer, originally from Saskatchewan and more recently hailing from the Lower Mainland, moved out to the Okanagan several years ago.
He has now finished his first year and aims to graduate as a 4th year Automotive journeyman in 2018.
A $500 gift card to KMS Tools in Kelowna awaited Holzer when he met with the car club for a photo last week.
Says Holzer: “I really appreciate this scholarship. The tools will be a big help to me in my studies and lessen the costs associated with my apprenticeship training."
"It’s a huge help and I’m very grateful to the Okanagan Mopars Car Club.”
