Fairplex Snapshot: Auto students visit Mecum Auctions

TLC CTEC mecum2 Fairplex Snapshot: Auto students visit Mecum AuctionsLast weekend auto students from The Learning Centers at Fairplex had the opportunity to visit the Mecum Auctions show taking place at Fairplex.

One of the things that make The Learning Centers at Fairplex programs unique is the amount of real-world experiences we are able to provide through our year-round events and on-campus happenings.

It was good for our auto students to step out of the workshop and take a look at a different aspect of the car industry. Special thanks to our teachers and to Mecum for working to make this happen!
