On November 9th, our Port St. Lucie Campus held its first Wheels and Motors Auto Show. It was a rainy day on Saturday, but spectators and automotive enthusiasts, alike, braved the weather for a fun-filled day. There were no shortages of interesting entries, with fifty-two entries in all. A wide variety of classic cars, sports cars, trucks, and motorcycles were on display. The St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office featured specialized canine units, and there was even a 1948 Oldsmobile patrol car and a military helicopter, which flew in just for the day.
The judging was conducted by Keiser University’s Automotive Dealership Management students. Awards for Best of Show, Top 50, Top 10 Specialty, Campus Choice, and Car Club Attendance A were awarded. “As our campus continues to grow, we are thankful for our community partners and look forward to welcoming friends and neighbors from near and far,” said Campus President, Leslie Kristof. President Kristof and Director of Strategic Alliance, Linda Fitzpatrick presented the awards.
Keiser University’s Automotive Dealership Management degree program prepares students with the skills needed to become future automotive industry leaders. The curriculum examines various environmental factors influencing the automotive industry, such as, technological progress, consumer expectations, government regulation, and personal mobility. Students are exposed to the unique challenges facing today’s automotive and vehicle retail distribution industry, and graduates will be equipped with the knowledge, skills, and techniques to thrive in this innovative and ever evolving environment.
Keiser University is thankful to its generous sponsors: GT Auto Detail, ComPPage, F & R Floor Maintenance, and Cleveland Clinic. It was a fun day for all and please join us next year. It’s sure to be an event that will grow from year to year.
