Students at the Schoharie campus of Capital Region BOCES Career and Technical School (CTE) will have a new vehicle to learn their trade on when school year opens in September.
On July 27, CTE accepted the delivery of a 2000 Honda Civic donated by Goldstein Auto Group.
CTE Business Liaison Nancy Liddle said Goldstein was aware of CTE’s needs for a new vehicle because of the work of Roderick Sipe, director of training and recruitment for Goldstein and a member of the Capital Region BOCES CTE Auto Trades Advisory Committee.
“Roderick is a very strong supporter of our program and meets with students throughout the year,” Liddle said. "He is a true advocate hands-on learning."
Additionally, Goldstein provides CTE students opportunities for work based learning and even employment throughout the school year.
The vehicle donation will be used by students to learn everything from how to change brakes and calipers to how to repair engine problems, wiring issues and other automotive issues.
