McGovern Auto Group donates three high-end new vehicles to local high schools

New models will provide students hands-on experience with the vehicles and systems they will encounter in today’s service centers

Newton, Mass.—McGovern Automotive Group (MAG) has announced that McGovern Ford dealerships in conjunction with Ford Motor Company have donated a trio of advanced technology vehicles to three local high schools’ automotive technology programs.

McGovern Ford of Lowell donated a 2024 Ford Mustang to Greater Lowell Technical High School in Massachusetts and a 2023 Lincoln Aviator to Salem High School in New Hampshire. McGovern Ford of Saugus donated a 2024 Ford Mustang to Salem High School in Massachusetts.

By donating new cars equipped with the latest technology, McGovern provides students with the opportunity to gain hands-on experience with the vehicles and systems they will encounter in today’s service centers as an automotive technician. This real-world training is crucial as it aligns with the current industry standards and technologies.

“McGovern Auto Group is committed to the recruitment and development of the next generation of automotive technicians, equipping them with the skills and knowledge necessary to excel from day one on the job,” said Matt McGovern, CEO of McGovern Auto Group. “Typically, schools receive older cars for training, limiting students to learning about outdated mechanics.”

Research from MarketWatch reports that the number of graduates completing postsecondary programs in the automotive sector has dropped 20% since 2020. Additionally, to meet the increasing demand, 100,000 new technicians are needed to enter the workforce annually through 2026.

“We plan to hire over 100 technicians per year, so by this donation, we hope that the best and brightest will consider a life-long career with MAG,” said Matt McGovern.
