The students in the 30th graduating class of the General Motors Automotive Service Educational Program (GM ASEP) at Brookhaven College celebrated their success at an invitation-only dinner on June 21st at Sundance Square in Fort Worth. The graduates were joined by their families, General Motors representatives, dealership personnel, and college faculty and administrators for the celebration. Co-sponsored by General Motors, this event highlights the important partnership between the college and industry along with the crucial role of personal support families provide in student success. With a 10-year graduation rate of 70 percent, the success of the GM ASEP at Brookhaven College proves the importance of each of these relationships, and this event serves to acknowledge the contributions of those involved.
