State Farm is pleased to announce a grant to support students in the Auto Body program at Minnesota State Community and Technical College in Detroit Lakes.

The $3,000 grant will allow the program to purchase needed tools and equipment used by the students and also will provide student scholarships.

“We are grateful to have received this grant and to have the support of State Farm,” said Dr. Peggy Kennedy, president, Minnesota State Community and Technical College.

“At M State we are committed to educating the region’s workforce and this will certainly have a significant impact on the Auto Body program.”

State Farm officials say education, safety, and community development are key components in reaching its goal to help build safer, stronger, and better educated communities.

“Our support of the college’s Auto Body program is a reflection of our commitment to Minnesota communities,” said State Farm Public Affairs Specialist Sonia O’Brien.

“We are pleased to be able to partner with the college in Detroit Lakes to help students acquire the career skills they will need to succeed.”
