The Automotive Business Management program at Seward County Community College/Area Technical School has begun a 2+2 Auto Business Management and Technology Management program with Kansas State University. From left is Dr. Don Von Bergen, department head for Arts, Sciences and Business at K-State Salina; Melissa Medina, a Liberal High School student who will be in this program in the fall, and Jim Brown, SCCC/ATS Auto Business Management instructor. This partnership allows students to earn their associate’s degree from SCCC/ATS and transfer to K-State through distance education without leaving the southwest Kansas community. Students can earn a Bachelor of Science in Technology degree.
