American Honda Motors Donates V6 Engine to Tahoma High School Through Shoreline’s Honda PACT Program
American Honda Motors (AHM) recently donated a V6 engine block to Tahoma High School instructor Luke Thompson through Shoreline Community College’s Honda PACT program.
Shoreline instructor Bob Biesiedzinski helped facilitate the donation of the engine, which will be used to train Tahoma’s automotive students. “Our hope in facilitating this donation is that the hands-on training the engine provides students will also help get them excited about post-secondary automotive education,” Biesiedzinski said.
Michael Boehm, Director of Dealer Services & Manufacturer Relations for Shoreline’s Professional Automotive Training Center – Dealer Academy, said “Honda has been very generous in donating to area high schools for the purpose of training and education. The donation of this engine to Tahoma continues that tradition and further proves their commitment to encouraging the future stars of the automotive industry.”
Shoreline’s Honda PACT program is a two-year cooperative program resulting in an Associate in Applied Arts & Sciences. Through the program, students spend alternating quarters in class and working in a Honda or Acura dealership, providing them with the fundamental skills to succeed in the workplace.
