Statesville, NC — Two vehicles retired from the Iredell Health System (IHS) fleet are being put to good use
as a learning aid for local students.

Earlier this year, IHS donated a Chevy Malibu and a Toyota 4Runner to the Career Academy and Technical School (CATS) in Troutman. These donations will enable students in the school’s Automotive Technology Center to gain real-life experience in car repair.

“We rely on donations,” said Larry Rogers, principal at CATS. “We want to give students a variety of cars to work on for them to learn different skills.”

Students will work on the cars as they learn various aspects of automotive repair. This is the first time IHS has made a vehicle donation to the Academy, which prepares students for skilled technical careers by providing hands-on training. Through donations like these and various other initiatives, Iredell Health System is living up to its mission to give back to the community which it serves.
