Students in the Automotive and Collision Repair programs at Bossier Parish School for Technology and Innovative Learning are on the road to accelerated learning, thanks to Holmes Honda.
Today, representatives from the dealership presented the keys to a 2011 Honda Odyssey mini-van to the instructors of BPSTIL’s automotive program.
The vehicle will give students the opportunity to get hands-on training in diagnostics and maintenance. The mini-van will later be transitioned into the collision program, providing additional experience to those in that field of study.
Holmes Honda of Bossier City is locating next door to BPSTIL. Representatives from Honda said they hope one day students in the automotive program will be able to come work for them as highly-skilled service technicians.
Holmes Honda is currently building its new Bossier City facility next to BPSTIL, and Principal Jayda Spillers could not be more thrilled to have the dealership as a neighbor.
“We are so pleased to add this 2013 vehicle to our automotive program inventory,” Spillers said. “We are also excited about having Holmes Honda as our neighbors as this will provide an opportunity to forge a partnership that will enhance our automotive and collision repair programs.”
Holmes Honda representatives presenting the keys are Chase Johnson and Daryl Oliver. Accepting them are BPSTIL automotive instructors Jeremy Dreher and Steve May, along with Principal Jayda Spillers.
