Accidents with Educational Purpose

Proceeds of Snell vehicle to benefit SCC student scholarship program

North Mankato, MN – Accidents happen; however, this accident had a purpose! 

The accident occurred when a 2007 Pontiac G6 was in a front-end collision. Thankfully, there were no serious injuries, but the vehicle had a lot of damage.  Accident, indeed.

Fortunately, this car crash created an opportunity for 26 Auto Body and Collison Technology students at South Central College.  Snell Motors purchased the Pontiac from its owner, and has arranged for SCC to use it as a project car.  Snell Motors plans to ultimately sell the restored vehicle and donate the proceeds to SCC’s scholarship program; they also donated the parts necessary to restore the vehicle.

Josh Blickem, a graduate of SCC, is the Collision Center Manager at Snell Motors and is an advocate for future technicians. Blickem was one of the first Snell Motors employees to see the 2007 Pontiac G6 and its potential. “To the current owner, it was time for a new car; however, I saw a project that had many technical components that would make a great class project at SCC,” he said.

Remember When? MTI Expansion

Posted on in Alumni News

image009It was 27 years ago that the Business, Nursing, Accounting, and Sales, Marketing and Management students and faculty moved from lower North Mankato to the current North Mankato Campus of South Central College. In addition to classroom space, building improvements also provided for a 400-seat Conference Center, an Auto Body Shop, library, student lounge and an expanded Cafeteria and Bookstore.

Prior to moving the 1,100 students to the North Mankato “hilltop”, classes for Mankato Technical Institute (now known as South Central College) were held in the school district’s Wheeler Campus Building, which we currently know as Garfield Elementary.
