WIT provides auto services to public

Fatima Oubaid / Washburn Review

If your vehicle is in need of a little extra attention, no worries. Starting Oct. 5 and continuing every other Friday this semester, the Washburn Tech Auto Collision program will be hosting “Autorama.”

“Autorama” is a fund-raiser for the Washburn Tech SkillsUSA student organization. All funds raised make it possible for students to compete in the Kansas and national Skills USA competions, which are usually held every April and June. Skills USA is a national, non-profit organization serving post-secondary and high school students who are preparing for careers in technical, trade and skilled service occupations. This year more than 40 Washburn Tech students participated.

Some of the Autorama services include an exterior wash, interior vacuuming, check and refill washer fluid, check and air tires, check lights, wash windows and inspect wiper blades. A $20 minimum donation is requested along with a previously scheduled appointment time.

Autorama will be held in the Auto Collision program facility, building K in the far northeast corner of Washburn Tech. Appointments will be made on a first come, first serve basis until all the slots are filled. For more information or to schedule an appointment please send a request, no later than 48 hours in advance of your preferred appointment date, to Eric Showalter via email at [email protected].
