Kaskaskia College is pleased to announce that Auto Collision Technology Student Denny Dennis of Salem is a recipient of the 3M/Collision Repair Foundation’s “Hire Our Heroes” Scholarship. The scholarship/grant provides Dennis with $2,500 worth of tools to help during his education.
The Collision Repair Education Foundation and the 3M “Hire Our Heroes” Program funds special scholarship opportunities for veterans that want to begin a collision repair career by attending a collision repair community college or college. Dennis served in the U.S. Army.
Dennis used the grant to purchase sandblasting and buffering tools to use during his time as a student in the Auto Collision Program and in his employment. “This is a blessing to me,” said Dennis. “I would never be able to afford all of this.” Dennis says his goal when he completes the program is to open his own shop.
