Washburn Institute of Technology students and instructors give back to the Topeka community with "Recycled Rides" community service project.

Washburn Institute of Technology students and instructors give back to the Topeka community with “Recycled Rides” community service project.

From Angela Deines’ article in The Topeka Capital-Journal:

Helping a person or family get a vehicle they might never be able to afford on their own gives Cameron Smith a sense of pride and fulfillment.

“No matter how much hard work we put into these vehicles, seeing the light in their eyes when they fully see their cars being uncovered — that’s the moment that we work for,” said Smith, 21.

The 2014 Topeka High School graduate was one of a handful of other Washburn Institute of Technology students and instructors working Friday on a 2003 Ford Windstar minivan and 2011 Hyundai Sonata as part of the technical school’s “Recycled Rides” marathon community service project.
