Automotive design interests Milford resident Maddy Razzaia, a junior at Platt Technical High School. Thanks to a $10,000 donation from the Auto Body Association of Connecticut (ABAC), Razzaia and other students throughout Connecticut will be better trained to pursue careers in automotive technology.
ABAC presented this donation in a ceremony at Platt Tech on Friday, Jan. 11, which was attended by a host of local and state officials – most notably, United States Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.). The funds will help the Connecticut Technical Education and Career System (CTECS) to modernize its automotive repair and refinishing program. This program is offered at Platt as well as seven other technical high schools statewide.
