Southern Adventist University Students Provide Free Car Inspections

OOLTEWAH, Tenn. (WDEF)- A dozen automotive mechanical students at Southern Adventist University gave free inspection checks on cars to anyone who dropped by the Samaritan Center in Ooltewah.The event not only provided free car checks but also took donations for the Samaritan Center.

Dale Walters, an instructor for the auto shop at the Samaritan Center said that, “Our goal is two fold. One of them is to give back something to the community. We want to teach our students that they need to do that. Secondly, we want to give them an experience of seeing a lot of cars in a very short time. This is a learning experience for them to see how cars are cared for or not cared for which is sometimes the case. This gives them a good experience. They get class credit for this and we do it twice a year. We do it every October and every April.”
