Lou Fusz Automotive Network Donates Two Cars to STLCC

Lou Fusz and STLCC officials during car donationThe St. Louis Community College automotive technology program recently received the generous donation of two cars from the Lou Fusz Automotive Network.

The 2002 Buick Century and 2008 Kia Rondo provide STLCC students a needed hands-on opportunity to learn about vehicle maintenance. Often, they work on their own cars or service staff vehicles. The donation offers a unique chance to work on a vehicle that doesn’t need to be returned.

Randy Harman, talent acquisition manager, said working with St. Louis Community College offers a terrific relationship because the College produces mechanics who are qualified and ready to work. It’s especially true for the Lou Fusz Network, with nine service centers across the St. Louis metropolitan area that are often seeking qualified employees to serve their customers.

“Our budding relationship with STLCC is beneficial for everyone involved,” Harman said. “We are excited about being able to provide them these two vehicles and look forward to working with the College even more in the future.”

Automotive technology offers both morning and evening classes, ranging from four to 24 months to complete. Students can receive either an associate degree or a certificate depending on their interest. In spring 2023, STLCC will break ground on a new automobile technology building on the south end of its Forest Park campus, promising the most state-of-the-art technology and learning opportunities for students.
