announces matching gift.

Southeast Technical’s automotive programs received a significant pledge from area auto dealerships and businesses that will help the college enhance curriculum, upgrade facilities, and support other student success initiatives. Members of the partnership include Chrysler Winona, Dahl Automotive, Lewiston Auto, Motor Parts & Equipment, Sugarloaf Ford Lincoln and Walz Chevrolet Buick GMC, all of whom have pledged a combined $65,000 to match alumni donations.

In addition, auto program instructors Tom Brandt, Mark Hoehn, Paul Polzer, and Butch Bundy are prepared to match alumni donations with a gift of $19,000, a sum that accrued from personal projects the group has taken on over the years. In total, Southeast Tech automotive programs stand to gain $84,000 in matching funds.

Double your gift today by making an online donation to the Southeast Tech auto programs initiative!

Both announcements were made at the first class reunion for auto program alumni, held Saturday, June 18, at the Winona campus in conjunction with the Steamboat Days annual car show. Auto program alumni enjoyed catching up with each other, reminiscing about their days at Southeast Tech, and feasting on a special hog roast while talking about all things automotive. Alumni were also joined by Norris Abbts, auto program founder and administrator from 1948 to 1988.
