Auto Group Donates to High School Tech Program

By Staff Writer June 20, 2024

McGovern Automotive Group, the Northeast's leading auto retailer, announced that McGovern Ford dealerships in conjunction with Ford Motor Company have donated a trio of advanced technology vehicles to three local high schools' auto technology programs. The donations further illustrate their commitment to the communities in which they serve. McGovern Ford of Lowell donated a 2024 Ford Mustang to Greater Lowell Technical High School in Massachusetts and a 2023 Lincoln Aviator to Salem High School in New Hampshire. McGovern Ford of Saugus donated a 2024 Ford Mustang to Salem High School in Massachusetts.

By donating new cars equipped with the latest technology, McGovern provides students with the opportunity to gain hands-on experience with the vehicles and systems they will encounter in today's service centers as an automotive technician. This real-world training is crucial as it aligns with the current industry standards and technologies. The initiative underscores the importance of learning on state-of-the-art equipment, ensuring that students are well-prepared for the demands of contemporary automotive service environments.

"McGovern Auto Group is committed to the recruitment and development of the next generation of automotive technicians, equipping them with the skills and knowledge necessary to excel from day one on the job," said CEO Matt McGovern. "Typically, schools receive older cars for training, limiting students to learning about outdated mechanics."

Modern cars feature advanced technologies that enhance safety, convenience, and connectivity. These include advanced driver assistance systems such as adaptive cruise control and automatic emergency braking. Additionally, they feature infotainment systems with touchscreen displays and smartphone integration, along with connectivity options like Wi-Fi hotspots and over-the-air updates. Safety is improved with 360-degree cameras and night vision assist, while enhanced user interfaces and proactive maintenance alerts also contribute to a more modern and reliable driving experience.
