Hallock Dealer Brings Students and Educators Together
By Ross Werner, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles
C&M Chrysler / Ford in Hallock, MN recently brought Automotive Students from four area High Schools to see presentations and meet with representatives from Mopar CAP-Local at Dakota County Tech College, Ford ASSET at Hennepin Tech College, and Automotive Technology at Northland College at Thief River Falls. The students also heard about working in a dealership environment from dealer employees and dealer owner Paul Blomquist.
Students viewed new technology and education presentations from the representatives, who then answered student questions in a panel forum. The students then toured C&M’s dealership facility with Service Manager Tim Peterson and viewed technology at work at the dealership, while having a lunch hosted by the dealership.
These young people are the future of our business and we are going to need many of them to fill key spots in our workforce
C&M is celebrating 50 years in business and is looking to Minnesota Technical education for its future.
