The Cerritos College Foundation received a $10,000 donation from the Greater Los Angeles New Car Dealers Association (GLANCDA) to support the College’s Automotive Technology Program. Matt Browning, board member of GLANCDA and president and partner at Browning Automotive Group, presented the check to Nazih Yehya, chairman of the Cerritos College Foundation Board, Joe Mulleary, chair of the Automotive Technology Program, and Carol Krumbach, executive director of the Cerritos College Foundation, on January 19. The funds will support student scholarships.
“GLANCDA has partnered with the Cerritos College Automotive Program for many years. Continuing this support will help educate well-trained technicians and future leaders of our industry,” said Bob Smith, executive director of GLANCDA. “We are committed to supporting workforce development and job creation in the region.”
GLANCDA and its franchise dealers have been dedicated supporters of Cerritos College’s automotive programs, generously donating more than $500,000 toward student scholarships, facility upgrades, and training enhancement. Most recently, GLANCDA donated $10,000 to the College in October 2021.
Cerritos College’s Auto Technology Program provides students with hands-on technical skills. The program is a nationally authorized training site for GM, Ford, Chrysler, and import vehicles. The College also hosts an Advanced Transportation and Logistics program, one of 10 centers in California. The program advances the workforce in the rapidly developing, technology-driven transportation and energy industries while improving the environment and stimulating the economy.
