CRC Industries launched the “CRC Build for the Future Scholarship” program with TechForce to inspire young men and women to explore a rewarding career in a technical trade and empower them through strong community, scholarships and career placement programs to achieve their dreams. CRC sponsored the GTO build to provide TechForce Foundation with funds for scholarships. The higher the bids, the more the scholarship will be granted, 100% of the proceeds from the auction will be donated to TechForce. At a minimum, five scholarships will be awarded for industrial/welding, five for automotive education, and at least three of the scholarships will be awarded to women.

“We’re thrilled to partner with CRC Industries on this initiative. We’re tremendously grateful for CRC’s financial support and the time and effort their team has put into helping to make the TechForce Foundation scholarship program a success,” said TechForce Foundation CEO Jennifer Maher.

We partnered with TechForce, Clay Millican, and Jeff Lutz on the 2006 Pontiac GTO not only to provide scholarships for technical education, but also to shine a light on the opportunities available for young people looking for a rewarding long-term career,” said Raquel Wenger, CRC Director of marketing, Americas.
