Project Fallen Hero

The Auto Collision Repair and Refinishing program, with the help of TV Media, is proud to announce that we have teamed up with Project Fallen Hero. The background story of the project is long, but if you take a minute and go to their website at: www.projectfallenhero.com, you can read the whole story and see our kids in action.

The short version is that the project bought a 1988 Mustang that belonged to Maj. Jeffery Calero who died in action in Afghanistan in 2007. Project Fallen Hero, a non-profit organization, is restoring Maj. Calero's car completely. Upon completion of the refinishing and restoring, the car will be presented back to Maj. Calero's family.

The project came to LVTI when Ed Yessaian, the lead body person on this task (who was also an assistant manager at Auto Body Clinic in Beverly), asked if we would help. LVTI's Auto Collision Repair and Refinishing program is familiar working with Mr. Yessaian since he has hired three of our students for co-op: Breanne Caisse, who still works there; Brujil Moreno, who still works there; and Juan Urena, who is now serving in the U.S. Marines in Afghanistan; and. Due to their success working with Mr. Yessaian, we were recognized and asked to assist in the project.

After approaching Ms. Paradis with the project and collaboration idea, we were given the green light. Our school is excited to help in such an honorable task and much gratitude goes out to all those who have helped and supported this project in any way. Please take a moment to check out their website.

Thank you,
Barry McCaul
