“We love hosting this each year because it’s our way of giving back to the community that helped fund our automotive facility in 2011,” said Automotive Professor Dan Warning. “It’s also a great way for the students to practice one-on-one customer service that they learn in the classroom, and for customers to get a free, professional assessment of their vehicle in a no-pressure environment.”

The 17,000 sq. ft. automotive expansion was completed in 2011 as part of JJC’s Master Plan, providing the program with new classrooms, a commercial service bay and additional storage. It was supported by funds from the 2008 $89 million voter-approved building bond/referendum.
