Earlier this spring, ABRA Auto Body partnered with the Collision Repair Education Foundation (CREF) and awarded 10 collision repair students with tool grants.
With the help of Automotive Collision Repair & Refinishing Principal Instructor Bruce Graffunder, Dunwoody student Anthony Pung learned he was one of those students during a class lecture:
The grant—open to high school seniors and/or post-secondary students studying collision repair—provided the winning students with the opportunity to select $2,000 worth of Snap-On tools and equipment from a list of entry-level body tools.
“The grant will make a huge difference in my life by providing me with the tools that I need to be successful in my career path,” said Anthony.
Anthony is currently an intern at Albertville Body Shop where he is learning and performing a wide variety of collision repair practices. Upon completion of his internship in August, Anthony will graduate from with an associate’s degree in Automotive Collision Repair & Refinishing.
Anthony plans to use the awarded tools as a starter set for his future employment as a body technician.
