"AYES/NATEF provides students with resources, on-line, that would not, otherwise, be available in their classrooms. The vehicles we acquire through donations from AYES provide hands-on learning opportunities for the students. The gifts presented to the mentors for supervising our interns are appreciated, very much. The AYES accreditation separates our auto program from non-AYES schools."
Thanks for all of your support,
Ed Van Hagen, Auto Services Instructor
