Ivy Tech Community College has dedicated a $900,000 auto body center where students will learn to repair damaged cars and trucks.
The renovated 10,000 square-foot building was built in in 1990 and had previously been used for construction offices and warehousing. It will now the school's auto body portion of its automotive technology program through the School of Technology.
The center allows students to learn a trade with up-to-date equipment and professional supervision while doing real repairs. Assistant Instructor Jaron Grayless says people can save money by bringing their cars to the center on a 2-acre site in an industrial and office park.
