LeMay Museum Collaboration to be Celebrated at Clover Park Technical College
Joint educational program to be featured at reception
(Tacoma, WA) – Clover Park Technical College and the LeMay Museum – America’s Car Museum – will showcase their expanded collaboration on June 2, 2006 in Building 18, at CPTC. The reception will celebrate the growing educational partnership and also recognize three Collectors Foundation’s scholarship recipients who are currently enrolled in the Automobile Restoration Program.
The educational collaboration gives students an opportunity to pursue careers in collector car restoration by helping to preserve and restore some of the LeMay Collection’s valuable automobiles. “The students will, upon completion, have a basic understanding of shop practice and the research skills that it takes to complete a thorough vehicle assessment,” said Stacy Puckett, Museum Collection Manager and Adjunct Instructor of the program. CPTC and the LeMay Museum plan to make this curriculum an ongoing course.
Those invited to the reception will include Clover Park Administration and Trustees, the LeMay Museum Board of Directors and Steering Committee, Collectors Foundation representatives, individual and corporate supporters of the Museum, local elected officials as well as local and regional media. The Clover Park Culinary Arts program will provide a variety of appetizers and beverages for the reception giving the students an opportunity to show off their culinary skills as well.
The Collectors Foundation of Traverse City, Michigan awarded scholarships totaling $10,000 to three CPTC Automobile Restoration Program students earlier this year. The scholarship recipients were jointly chosen by the LeMay Museum and CPTC. Find out more about the Collectors Foundation at www.collectorsfoundation.org.
