On June 22, General Motors’ President of North America, Mark Reuss, visited with the students involved in the KaleidoLINKS program, an at-risk youth automotive after-school program in Washington, D.C.
Through a GM Foundation grant of $35,000, KaleidoLINKS purchased a 2011 Chevrolet Camaro SS coupe, which the students will transform into a racecar. Once complete, the students will race the Camaro this year in the One Lap of America, the National Auto Sports Association and Sports Car Club of America events.
Mark Reuss spent time talking to the students about everything from the importance of education and working on a real car, to math models, aerodynamics, tires, drag, design, algebra, diversity and career progression.
The meet and greet was featured on WUSA 9. Here’s a link to the story and video by the local CBS affiliate.
