Bridgestone/Firestone Contributes Funds to Student Training Programs
Farmers Branch, Dallas, TX • Representatives from Bridgestone/Firestone presented the automotive technology program at Brookhaven College a check for $10,000 to support the partnership between the college and the company. For more than six years, Bridgestone/Firestone has been affiliated with Brookhaven College, offering students company-sponsored training. Brookhaven College is one of Bridgestone/Firestone’s Partners in Training, a program that allows students to apprentice with the company and at the same time receive the academic and skills training they need in a classroom setting.

Students participating in the PIT program take 15 credit hours of coursework to complement their on-the-job training with BFS. Through their South Central Zone, BFS supports more than a dozen training programs.

Bridgestone/Firestone has consistently recognized Brookhaven College for the Business Studies Division's and automotive technology program's dedication to the partnership between the two entities. The company has donated thousands of dollars to the automotive technology program to enhance student learning. Funds have purchased tools, equipment and supplies that benefit students in many of the auto tech programs.
For information about the automotive technology courses and programs offered at Brookhaven College, contact the automotive technology department at 972-860-4189 or the Business Studies Division at 972-860-4160.
