Snap-On is awarding two collision repair students with tool sets meant to assist in their education. Each tool set is valued at $3,010 and includes a basic Snap-On starter tool set and a five-drawer rolling storage unit. The tool grant was available to high school and post-secondary students from select collision repair programs in North America.

The student winners of the 2017 Snap-On Tool Grant include:

  • Tom James of Kennedy King College in Chicago, Illinois
  • Heather Lang of Indiana County Technology Center in Indiana County, Pennsylvania.

Greg Rintala, Snap-On National Sales Manager-Education, said, “Snap-On is involved with Career and Technical Education and has been for many years. The Skills Gap is a major issue in these times and Snap-On recognizes this. Getting students trained to fill these jobs will give them a way to feed, clothe, and shelter their future families possibly for their whole careers with a very dignified job is important. To do that work, they need tools and Snap-On feels very privileged to be part of CREF’s tool grant program. We would like to congratulate the winners.”
