Ford donates 2016 Fusion and equipment to Corry Area High School

Local News

Corry Area High School students have state-of-the-art automotive equipment thanks to a group of dealerships.

Erie Ford Dealers donated a 2016 Ford Fusion and car diagnostic tools to the Corry Area High School Career and Technical Center.  The Ford Future Techs Program in its third-year awards schools the tools they need to stay current with changing technology and to address the shortage of auto technicians.

Noah Thomas, Sophomore at Corry HS, says, “It’s going to be nice to learn the electronics and everything that’s involved with this vehicle because this definitely has a lot more electronics than the vehicles we’ve been working on.”

Mark Winkler of the Ford Future Techs Selection Committee says, “If they can hone their skills on this vehicle and listen to their instructor, they can go about anywhere they want and get a job the day they graduate.”

Prior to getting the fusion and new technology, students worked on a 2003 vehicle which was already outdated.
