Empowering the Next Generation: Price Family Dealerships at UTI’s Future Student Workshop

February 5th, 2024 by


Last week, our Downtown Ford Sacramento team had the privilege of participating in a transformative event at Universal Technical Institute (UTI) called the Future Student Workshop … and it was more than just an event – it was a commitment to nurturing the dreams of young minds in our community. Big thanks to our team members Gary, Courtney, Angie, Jordan, and Rene for representing us and helping our local youth get on the path to success!

The day began in the UTI auditorium, filled with the buzz of eager families and students – that was fun. Here, opening statements set the stage, highlighting the journey ahead of us today. As various student services departments introduced themselves alongside visiting employers, there was an unmistakeable sense of opportunity in the air.

Our contribution to this inspiring day was a presentation about the Price Family Dealerships and all the good things we do throughout the community. We also delved into the myriad of career options available within the automotive industry, emphasizing what students should focus on during their education. A significant highlight was our discussion on the MSAT program – a pathway that could lead these bright students directly to a fulfilling career with Price Family Dealerships upon graduation.

The first hour culminated with students branching out to participate in a grant competition, an optional yet invaluable opportunity. Meanwhile, families and supporters embarked on tours, engaging with individual support stations and exploring the facility’s offerings. Our team was stationed at a table in one of the UTI labs, ready to engage, inform, and inspire. We answered questions, shared insights, and discussed why UTI is a stellar choice for those aspiring to join the automotive industry.

This event was not just about a day of networking – it was the beginning of a journey. We now have the incredible opportunity to follow these students as they progress through their training at UTI, witnessing their growth and potentially welcoming them into the Price Family Dealerships family. We believe in the power of education and the promise of the future. Our participation in the UTI Future Student Workshop is a testament to our commitment to the community and the automotive industry. We look forward to the bright futures these students will carve out and are honored to be a part of their journey.
