Car Club - The SCC Car Club was established in order to strengthen the ties within the local automotive industry and create a common purpose and bond among the students. Members’ involvement ranges from special projects, to organizing and hosting car shows and other special events within the local community. Over the years we have generated funds through these events in order to support and sustain multiple scholarships and tool awards for our student members, send our students on field trips, and gain the ability to tour facilities within the automotive community such as the BMW plant. This community involvement allows our students the opportunity to witness the countless possibilities within the automotive field and also allows the industry leaders the opportunity to directly interact with the students, which could potentially lead to future employment.
