PBIR Partners with MCI Institute of Technology to Donate Two Scholarships

Friday, November 8, 2013

Palm Beach International Raceway™ (PBIR) is proud to team up with the MCI Institute of Technology (MCI) in supporting a tradition of excellence in racing and promoting automotive education by sponsoring a contest for two free scholarships for the upcoming 2014 school year.

Two lucky winners will receive a complete 12-month professional training in either an automotive or allied healthcare program: Automotive Service Technology; Automotive Collision, Repair and Refinishing; Pharmacy Technician; Medical or Administrative Assistant; or Massage Therapy. For the student selecting an automotive program, Bennett Auto Supply will also provide one starter tool box kit.

The comprehensive curriculum at MCI is designed to deliver both academic and clinical practice for students. Upon completion of each student’s individual program, the Education Department works closely with the Placement Department to assist graduates in successfully obtaining employment. MCI offers convenient day and evening classes at their Palm Beach County facility, located off Okeechobee Boulevard just west of I-95.

MCI staff will be attending the following events at PBIR to promote the school while collecting contest entries:

  • 32nd Annual Bennett Auto Supply Citrus Nationals presented by South Florida Chevy Dealers and JW Performance Transmission – November 8–10, 2013 (#CitrusNationals)
  • Speed Fest Powered by BizSpeed and American Speedwear – December 7, 2013 (#SpeedFest)

Entries must be submitted by December 10, 2013, and the winners will be selected on December 15, 2013. Applicants must have a valid high school diploma or GED, and this offer is not redeemable for cash.
