Auto Trades Dept. to host new driver awareness seminar, child safety seat inspection April 29

In conjunction with the 50th anniversary celebration of Alfred State’s Wellsville campus, the college’s Automotive Trades Department will be hosting a new driver awareness seminar and child safety seat inspection at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, April 29 in the Senior Automotive Building.

Delivering the seminar will be Department Chair Kent Johnson and Associate Professor Eric Wilmot, who will speak about vehicle maintenance needs, such as how to check fluids and how to change a tire. During this time, the child safety seat inspection will be taking place in the same building.

“We’re excited to participate in the 50th anniversary celebration of the School of Applied Technology campus, and to also be able to provide these great opportunities to the public,” Johnson said. “It is essential that each new driver be aware of basic car maintenance, and that all child safety seats are properly functioning. We strongly encourage the public to attend.”

While the cost of the event is free, registration is required, and can be completed by emailing Johnson at johnsokw@alfredstate.edu.

Alfred State classes first began in Wellsville on Oct. 19, 1966. Since that time, the Educational Foundation of Alfred, Inc. has owned and maintained the campus, having made more than $8 million in improvements over the years. The group is a private foundation representing faculty, staff, and friends of Alfred State dedicated to improving the college community through the support of educational programs.
