Morgan Distribution, Inc. has gifted two bundles to the Automotive Technology program at Ivy Tech Community College Northeast through the Ivy Tech Foundation. The bundles consist of hundreds of pieces of automotive equipment, from paint and masking materials to collision repair equipment.
“It’s a generous donation,” says Jaron Grayless, the Automotive Technology instructor who helped secure the donation. “It allows students access to equipment and materials they wouldn’t otherwise see, and it frees up some money for me to buy equipment that I normally can’t—items I can’t afford because our budget’s so tight.”
For example, students wouldn’t otherwise have access to House of Kolor products, which largely make up the second donated bundle. House of Kolor makes high-caliber custom refinish products.
The first bundle is valued at $50,734.53, and the second is valued at $45,255.66, for a total worth of nearly $96,000.
Morgan Distribution is a wholesale collision repair distribution company based in Fort Wayne.
