When Pro Auto Care opened its doors more than two decades ago, we did it with intention and purpose. Yes, we absolutely love the automotive repair industry and have a passion for working on cars. But it was more than that. Much more. We care about the people and the communities we serve and we know that we can make a significant difference in the lives of so many. While our intention is to provide quality auto repair service that is steeped in craftsmanship and integrity, our purpose is to serve and improve the lives of those around us where and when possible.
Most recently, we were honored to host a walkthrough of our shop for students from the George Washington High School S.T.E.M (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Team. Pro Auto Care sponsored their team last year for their trip to the championships in Houston and we are grateful to be able to increase the sponsorship of their team for this year. We know how much this matters and we want to contribute to their success.
STEM programs matter so much because it’s the wave of the future. These career areas are growing more than 17% while other, more traditional, areas are growing at less than 10% and STEM-degree holders have higher incomes and earning potential than the rest of us. Pro Auto Care recognizes the more we can expose our youth to the possibilities of the applications of such an education, the more we are helping them to find their niche and do great things, for themselves and the people their work affects.
The reason we wanted these kids to come in and tour our facility, is so they are able to make the connection between what they are learning through their STEM studies and what’s happening in real life and real time within the automotive repair industry. We did our best to make it both informative and fun for them and we thoroughly enjoyed learning from them as well! This is one bright group of kids and we look forward to seeing what they go on to accomplish with such a great head start.
We’ve created a culture at Pro Auto Care of community involvement. That’s why we weren’t too surprised when our very own Anthony donated a much-needed Snap-On rolling tool box to their team. Anthony is one more example of our commitment to making a difference in our community. We love what we do and we love our customers even more.
