The Villa Capri Cruisers Car Club recently established a scholarship at Johnson College.
The Villa Capri Cruisers Car Club, Inc. Scholarship will be awarded to a student in the Automotive Technology Program with the most financial need. The Automotive Technology Program at Johnson College prepares students to enter into the work force as entry-level technicians in the many phases of the automobile, truck, and diesel industries.
This is the first scholarship ever sponsored by the Club, which raises funds through donations, volunteer work, sponsorships, and annual calendar sales. Members have always wanted to leave their legacy by benefiting the community in some way. Johnson College was chosen due to its positive reputation in the area and its NATEF-accredited (National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation) Automotive Technology Program.
Joe Carra, President of the Club, stated, "We wanted to start the fund due to the fact that almost everyone in the club enjoys working on their own cars, so in a sense you become a mechanic to your own vehicles. Johnson College provides this type of skill to those who choose the individual fields they enjoy. This inspired our members to start this fund with hopes of increasing it in the near future."
For more information on the Villa Capri Cruisers Car Club, visit Support the Club by attending their Cruise Nights in the Steamtown Mall parking lot on the third Friday of the month. The next Cruise Night is scheduled for Friday, May 18.
