The McPherson College Auto Restoration program continues to reach new heights, returning home from London with the 2015 International Historic Motoring Award.

Amanda Gutierrez, Vice President of the school’s auto restoration program joined in on the KSAL Morning News Friday and said she was glad they traveled to Great Britain last month.

“We were nominated as an industry supporter of the year – and decided well, we better go to London just in case. And we won, it was exciting,” she said.

Gutierrez says the prestigious honor highlights the program’s forty-year commitment and growing reputation abroad.

“It was a  two year program, and then after Jay Leno got involved he started a national advisory board of industry leaders,” she said.

Gutierrez added that spark provided guidance for the program and ultimately led to cementing it as a path for a bachelor’s degree in 2001.

According to Gutierrez, the program is now operating at capacity, graduating about 25 students in each of the past two years, while bringing in sixty to seventy new students on campus.

“Right now we’re focused on quality at capacity,” she said.
