In addition, T.G.I.F. has created a student scholarship in memory of an instructor's loved one, enthusiastically sponsored students to compete in the annual Toys for Tots charity event, contributed numerous equipment donations, served as an active advisory member for nearly 20 years and made a commitment to the local community with the gainful employment of program graduates.
The quality CTE provided in Mission Valley ROP programs, along with resources and support from T.G.I.F. Body Shop, Inc., have resulted in preparing students with the hands-on skills, industry training, and professionalism needed to secure employment in the Transportation Technology industry.
The Platinum Educational Business Partner Award highlights the type of relationship that is critical for the ongoing success of career technical education programs and the positive benefits that result for the students, the community, and local economy when it is treated as a fundamental commitment.
