BEEVILLE, TX—Coastal Bend College automotive students participated in the Texas Mile event this past weekend by helping inspect over 100 automobiles at Chase Field. This marks the fourth time the students have helped in the twice a year event, and the experience provides them with hands-on experience on the other side of the automotive industry.
CBC Automotive Instructor Brian Anderson said, “The drivers chatted about their vehicles with my students, and they all enjoyed the event despite the cold weather. I strive to provide my students with opportunities to apply what we learn in the classroom to the outside world, and we look forward to helping again in March 2013.”

Jones High School dual credit students Luis Artia, Darren Blankenship, Michael De Pau, Marc Montez, Felix Rodriguez, and Mario Velasquez.
