Teacher and students

Congratulations are in order for the Collision & Refinishing program led by instructor Duane Koch.  This high school program at EHOVE has been named the recipient of the $1500 Finishmaster Pinmaster Benchmark Grant and the $500 Columbus Collision Education Grant by the Collision Repair Education Foundation.  Koch said the funds will be utilized to buy tools for the students to learn how to fix damaged vehicles using professional techniques of sanding, painting, repair, vinyl wrapping and more.

Additionally, the Collision Repair Education Foundation has provided four 3M sanders, valued at a total of $2000, to EHOVE's program.  The foundation's mission is to support collision repair educational programs, schools and students to create qualified, entry-level employees and connect them with an array of career opportunities.

Current 10th & 11th graders may apply now the Collision & Refinishing program for the next school year.  For  questions or more information, check out the program's page, find EHOVE Collision & Refinishing on social media, or call EHOVE.
