Steve’s Auto Repair and Tire Donates a Honda CRV to Northern Virginia Community College Manassas Campus for the Automotive Program

Steve’s Auto Repair & Tire donated a manual transmission Honda CR-V to Northern Virginia Community College’s (NVCC) automotive program.

“This donation from Steve’s Automotive will greatly enhance our automotive program because it’s hard to get vehicles with manual transmissions,” said NVCC Automotive Instructor Gary Phares.

Steve’s has donated several other vehicles to the NOVA program over the years.

Steve’s owner ST Billingsley also serves on the NVCC Advisory Committee as a representative of the automotive industry.

“We get donations wherever we can, so we can have a variety of automobiles to teach our automotive students. In our classes, they’re set up as 50% lecture and 50% hands on. So with this, students that are working in Honda dealerships can actually do their hands on training,” said Phares.

According to Phares, NVCC offers certificate and degree programs for indiivduals that want to work in the automotive industry.

“Right now there’s a huge shortage of automotive technicians in the field and I try to encourage students to go on and finish a two year degree,” said Phares.
