WELLESLEY HILLS, MA (April 27, 2012) – General Motors Company donated a 2011 CTS fully loaded Cadillac to MassBay Community College for the school’s GM Automotive Service Educational Program. After the car was damaged during transit, R.C. Olsen Cadillac donated the repairs. “The automotive industry is so technologically driven now that we need people trained right,” said Richard Olsen, President, R.C. Olsen Cadillac, “Anything we can do to help the students help us to repair our cars and keep our customers happy and on the road, we stand behind 100 percent. Our history and experience with MassBay students has always been outstanding,” he continued.
Unlike many automotive programs, MassBay students graduate with dual credentials with an Associate’s Degree in Science and a Manufacturer’s Specific Certificate. Since MassBay has a close working relationship with the auto dealers, most students work with the dealers while earning their degree. MassBay’s ASEP has a 100 percent hiring rate for its graduating students. R.C. Olsen presently employs three former MassBay automotive students: Jason Ellis, (’00), David Gomes (’00), and Dan Howard (‘87). For more information, visit: www.massbay.edu.
