From the Los Angeles Times website:

After a years-long hiatus, Glendale Unified reinstated an automotive program at Hoover High School this past fall.

Now, several months later, the fledgling program is beginning to receive the critical boost it needs from dealers who work blocks away on the Brand Boulevard of Cars.

On Wednesday, representatives from several of those dealerships, including Acura of Glendale, Diamond Honda, Pacific BMW, Allen Gwynn Chevrolet, and Star Auto Group, including Ford, Lincoln and Mazda, visited Hoover to scope out the garage.

Their investment in the school’s program has already been substantial, with the donation of tools, uniforms and money, including a $10,000 check earmarked for the auto program from Star Auto Group President Steve Bussjaeger that went to the Glendale Educational Foundation.
