CBC Students Paint Government Vehicles

PASCO, Wash. -- Auto technology students at Columbia Basin College spent this semester detailing and repainting three government vehicles.

They painted two military style vehicles for the Benton County SWAT team, and an ambulance for the City of Grandview, saving the agencies an estimated $5,000.

The program has had success in placing students in the professional world; over half of its second-year students are already working in professional auto body shops.
