Hoffman Estates, IL – June 19, 2014 – To help provide school counselors from around the country with collision industry and career opportunity information for their students, the Collision Repair Education Foundation will be exhibiting and presenting at the 2014 American School Counselor Association Annual Conference being held June 29-July 2 in Orlando, Florida. The Education Foundation will have a booth during the conference’s trade show and also will be presenting during the “Career Tracks” section of the event.
Collision Repair Education Foundation Director of Development Brandon Eckenrode noted, “We look forward to the opportunity to meet with school counselors nationwide and provide them with information about the $35 billion collision industry, explain the various industry career opportunities for students to consider, and encourage that their schools invest in their collision school programs. As we will be increasing our efforts to communicate to school administration and counselors about the need to support their high school and post-secondary collision school programs, the ability to have a presence at this event is a great first step. The collision industry should be proud of the over $20 million in donations that have been provided to collision school programs since 2008 through the Collision Repair Education Foundation, and we look forward to highlighting the industry to the counselors.”
