6—Algeria (la.) Upper Des Moinet Thursday, Oct. 26, 1967 Donate Equipment To Use In School Mechanic Course General Motors recently donated a group of automotive components to the Sentral School district for use in the school's automotive mechanics department. R. M. Enders of the service section of GM made the official presentation of the equipment at a special student assembly on Oct. 17. In attendance were Warren Nelson from the Kossuth Motor Co. of Algona, and Joe Kemna from Kemna Motor Co., Bancroft. A Chevrolet V-8 engine, carburetors, delcotron generator and regulator, distributor, starting motor and other electrical equipment were included, along with an engine stand and special tools. In speaking to the Sentral faculty and student body Mr. Enders said that GM has invested over seven and a half million dollars in the past few years in educational assistance to schools and has made provisions for scholarships and maintains fully the General Motors Institute at Flint, Mich. "In fact," he continued, "there is such a need and demand for additional trained automotive service personnel that GM will continue to do more and more to encourage young men and women to enter the industry for a life-long career. Opportunities are unlimited." President of the Sentral school board, Dale Schroeder, accepted the donation on behalf of the school and extended the thanks of the school, its students and patrons. Under construction at the present time at the Sentral High School is a new addition which will include an expanded industrial education shop facility which will permit an expanded program in automotive mechanics education.
