Belle Tire unveiled a newly remodeled and equipped classroom and presented three $1,000 scholarships at Lincoln Tech’s Indianapolis campus.
Belle Tire President, Don Barnes III, explained why the partnership with Lincoln Tech is so important. “We’re committed to our neighbors and the communities where we do business. Helping students find a financially secure vocation and career is critical to a vibrant and strong community. Lincoln Tech is a great partner who shares our commitment. We are excited every time a graduate joins the Belle Tire family.”
Barnes explained that the company’s rapid growth in Indiana, 26 new stores in the past four years, means it is continuously seeking skilled auto service technicians. “We turn to excellent training institutions like Lincoln Tech to provide candidates with the hands-on skills these careers require.”
Brent Jenkins, President of Lincoln Tech’s Indianapolis campus said, “We thank Belle Tire for their generous scholarship donations and support of our Automotive and Diesel Technology programs. They have been an amazing partner and play a key role in raising awareness among our students of career opportunities in the auto and diesel industries. We’re grateful to count them among our employer partners and look forward to continuing the relationship for years to come. This sponsored classroom is an affirmation of that commitment.”
