Alumni Give Back to Automotive Technology

Three of the first students to attend classes in the Kansas Technology Center had such a transformative experience, they reciprocated — and in a big way.

They returned to campus to help the Department of Automotive Technology officially unveil nearly $300,000 worth of heavy equipment donated by the three.
