More than 50 General Motors dealership service technicians gathered at Brookhaven College for a GM Parts and Service Club meeting on May 19th. Stephen Herd and Marvin Johnson, automotive technology professors, offered the college as host-site for the meeting that drew service managers from around the metroplex. The dealership representatives had an opportunity to see the expanded facilities for automotive courses and hear more about training opportunities at the college. Those who attended received copies of a new poster they can display in their lounge area which promotes the GM automotive service educational program at the college.
Annette Wilson, director of the career development center at Brookhaven College, was part of a featured story on a recent broadcast of The 33 News. She was part of a story about college graduates who are returning home when searching for a job. The story notes that as many as 85 percent of graduates are returning home, but Annette says she has seen an upswing in the job market. While many graduates are being called the “boomerang” generation, kids who are returning home, Annette also notes many parents are welcoming their children as they return.
