When Sewell Family of Cos. decided to move its Ford-Lincoln dealership in Odessa, Texas, it had a good use in mind for the building and site it would leave behind.
The dealership group donated both to the local community college. The store will be renovated and renamed Odessa College Sewell Auto Tech.
"The new facility will allow us to greatly expand our auto and diesel technology programs," Odessa College President Gregory Williams told Fixed Ops Journal. "It is going to be outstanding."
Sewell Family of Cos. operates four dealerships and has Ford, Lincoln, Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, Toyota and BMW franchises. Another branch of the family owns Sewell Automotive Cos. in Dallas.
