RE: Event Proposal for Automotive Technology
The students in the various Automotive Technology courses would like to conduct a “no donation required but donations accepted” vehicle inspection lane for a six hour period on Saturday, March 19th, 2005. The inspection lane will actually run right through the shop. This will be an excellent opportunity for people in the local community to see the students of the Automotive Technology in action, generating interest and support for the Community College foundation and providing a service to the community. It may also lead to some donations which could be used in the materials budget for 2005. Other schools report collections exceeding $400 when a “suggested donation” was requested.
The support required would be primarily for help in promoting the event to the community. We request help from the graphics design class to design attractive flyers and from the print shop to duplicate flyers. Flyers could be posted around campus and distributed to the high schools for distribution to parents. It would be helpful as well if staff could be on hand to conduct tours of the auto shop and classrooms while inspections are being performed by students. Additionally, we will need some signage directing traffic, and some large orange caution cones to create lanes. If the maintenance department does not have these cones, we can borrow them from the water department.
No direct costs to this event are foreseen. It is hoped that the tours of the facility can be conducted by volunteers to avoid the cost of additional payroll. If payroll is required, it should be manifest that if the event attracts even one new automotive student, the increased funding that will result will more than cover the costs involved.
