GM Donates 2014 C7 Corvette to Suffolk’s Auto Technology Program

A $70,000 2014 Chevrolet Corvette donated by the GM Automotive Service Education Program is on display at Suffolk County Community College’s Automotive Technology Program. From left: Craig Joseph, GM manager New York After Sales; Teresa Noto, Suffolk County Community College (SCCC); Joseph Imperial, Academic Chair/Director of Automotive Technology SCCC; Paul Lemay, Chevrolet, GM manager After Sales; Richard Milano, SCCC; Brett Word, Chevrolet – GM; Glenn Jacob, district manager After Sales. Students: Nicholas Weinman (Levittown), James Rayve (Dix Hills), Emil Trotta (Wading River), Jake Andersen (Massapequa), Scott Welsh (Patchogue). The Corvette will serve as a learning platform for automotive technicians in Suffolk County Community College’s Automotive Technology Program.

When Chris Evans as Captain America needs a ride in the opening scene of “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” the Black Widow, played by Scarlett Johansson, appears in a gleaming black-on-black 2014 Corvette Stingray.

And if Black Widow’s ride of choice ever needs repairs, students from Suffolk County Community College’s Auto Technology program will have the expertise to keep her and Captain America moving on to their next mission thanks to the GM Automotive Service Education Program’s (ASEP) donation to the college,  of a 2014 C7 Corvette, black-on-black, that is worth an estimated $70,000. The Corvette was named the 2014 North American Car of the Year.

The donated American muscle car can never be titled, sold or road driven according to the terms of the donation to the college, but it will serve as a learning platform for the college’s Automotive Technology students seeking certification as automotive technicians with dealerships or repair centers.

Students who are accepted to the college’s competitive program can choose to be certified from among the following: GM-ASEP, for either General Motors dealerships or AC Delco repair centers; Honda PACT, for Honda or Acura dealerships; Toyota T-TEN, for Toyota or Lexus dealerships; and ATAC, for all other manufacturers’ dealerships or independent shops.

The donations include a 2011 Cadillac Escalade, a 2012 Chevrolet Cruze and a 2013 Cadillac ATS. Through these generous donations, General Motors provides educational vehicles for students at the College.

“These vehicles will be used in class to train our students in the latest technology, which is extremely critical for the automotive industry,” said Joe Imperial, Director and Academic Chair of Suffolk County Community College’s Automotive Technology Department. “We appreciate General Motors’ generosity and their continued support of our partnership.”

“We are proud to support training programs that prepare the next generation of automotive technicians,” said Todd Dawn, GM ASEP Program Manager. “Our commitment to our customers goes well beyond building a quality product. Our dedication to excellence starts at the training level by partnering with schools in communities around the globe to share our collective passion for the automotive industry and to educate, inspire and motivate the technicians of tomorrow.”

Since 1979, GM’s continued commitment to identify and support the GM Automotive Service Educational Programs at colleges and universities has produced over 16,000 service technicians. GM ASEP incorporates advanced automotive technical training with a strong academic foundation of math, reading, and electronics, and both analytical and technical skills. Students can earn an associate degree while working and learning on the job, resulting in a solid education combined with invaluable work experience.
Suffolk County Community College offers the General Motors ASEP program and multiple other A.A.S. degree programs in Automotive Technology.
