Fort Morgan, CO. 04/22/14.  For more than 10 years State Farm Insurance has partnered with theImage: A vehicle inside an auto painting booth. Morgan Community College (MCC) Collision Technology program to provide the College with salvaged vehicles for training. However, this marks the first year that MCC students have been asked to repair State Farm fleet vehicles.

State Farm delivered a fleet vehicle that was “totaled” due to extensive hail damage. MCC Collision Tech students were then tasked with repairing the sedan. “Our partnership has allowed our students the opportunity to practice a new technique that currently isn’t being taught anywhere else,” says MCC Instructor Tim Grauberger. “Not only do we do quality repair, but we teach cutting-edge techniques. The hail-damaged vehicle allowed us to demonstrate ‘push-to-paint,’ a new form of paintless dent repair.”

State Farm, headquartered in Greeley, provides real-life repair scenarios for students. MCC alumni Eric Riddle can attest, “the cars donated by State Farm were absolutely invaluable to my education. No one could have duplicated the heavy collision repairs without their donations.”

State Farm will continue to partner with Morgan Community College, and is scheduled for two more vehicle donations this fall semester, notes Riddle, now a State Farm Estimator and member of MCC’s Collision Advisory Committee.
