Haddad Auto’s ‘Car Care Tips For Teens’ Program Expands to Cover All of Berkshire County

Haddad’s in-school car care tips program, originally available in central Berkshire County, has expanded to include high schools throughout the Berkshires.

Online PR News – 30-May-2014 – Pittsfield, MA – Haddad’s in-school car care tips program, originally available in central Berkshire County, has recently expanded to include high schools throughout the Berkshires. Service technicians and staff from Haddad Hyundai, Haddad Subaru, and Haddad Toyota, along with Service Director, Jim Torrico, were recently invited to share their expertise with students at Monument Mountain Regional High School (MMRHS) in Great Barrington. Over 75 juniors and seniors learned how to check their oil, change a flat tire, and jump start a car, and were given the opportunity to try it themselves. The high school students were also able to ask Haddad techs any questions they had about car care in general.

Chris D’Aniello, MMRHS’ Automotive Technology teacher, commented, “The team from Haddad Auto Group gave the students at Monument an experience that will last a lifetime.”

At the end of this month, Haddads will hit the road again but this time heading north, bringing their program to Mount Greylock Regional High School in Williamstown.

Physical Education teacher Lynn Jordan said, “The seniors actually came to me and asked if I could run some workshops for them on things they’ll need to know ‘in the real world.’ The first one they mentioned was how to change a tire, and your oil, and ‘stuff like that.’ As a school, we feel that we have so many other things we need to teach the kids, all the testing and curriculum, that we fall short on preparing them for the real world outside of education: how to care for your car, how to be safe, being smart financially, how to transition to college, how to write a resume/interview, etc… This is the first time we have offered these workshops, but I don’t think it will be the last!”

This is the third year in a row that Haddads has offered on site high school car care demos.
