Automotive Mechanics: 1980s

Nanaimo's Meyers Holland Motors donated this Ford vehicle to Malaspina College’s automotive program in January 1988.  The vocational department has always been grateful for donations from Nanaimo’s business and community members as they provide valuable hands-on learning experiences for students.  Clockwise from instructor Iver Krogstad (white coat) are Jean Pierre Martineau, Victor Mesic, Gordon Renyard, Carl Anderson, Vince Nolin, Rod Otteson, Blair Abernathy, Callum Wilson, Chad Stewart, Ezzer Quiamco, Andrew Riddoch, and Kelly Regetz.
