Next Gen Education Summit Uses Automobiles to Give Students Inspiration, Opportunity and Growth

AUBURN, IND. – This Labor Day Weekend, the team at Worldwide Auctioneers, an Auburn, Indiana-based vintage car auction company, have invited area students to the auction arena to motivate them toward personal growth, using what they know best: Automobiles. Friday, August 29, 2014, from 1-5 p.m., prior to Saturday’s auction, the Next Gen Education Summit at the National Automobile and Truck Museum will show students how the automobile can be used as a vehicle for inspiration, no matter what occupation they choose.

“This program is designed to come alongside existing education and community entities and bring the ‘inspirational/cool’ factor,” explained Worldwide principal John Kruse. Our intention is to inspire students and give them an opportunity to recognize their potential. We’ll focus on applying the principles we discuss to all fields of opportunity and match them with the 16 Career Clusters identified by the education community.”

National leader in education development and Summit coordinator Sen. Dennis Kruse (R-Auburn) will explain how principles learned in the automotive field can transfer to real-world situations. He’ll be joined by expert panel members from all over the world, and students from DeKalb Central High School, New Tech, Change Academy and Crossing Alternative schools in Fort Wayne. Gathering in the L29 Cord Building of the former Auburn Automobile Co., break-out sessions with field experts will cover automobile restoration, preservation and maintenance, the historical aspects of automobile design and how to judge motorcars on styling and originality, but also the importance of communication and attention to detail.

“While learning about the automobile, they also learn about creative thinking, networking, entrepreneurship and striving for excellence,” John Kruse said. “It’s not a ‘car program for kids’ as much as it is a way for us as passionate car people to impact the lives of all students, whatever their interest. At the same time, it’s really exciting for ‘car’ kids, and I'm sure we'll develop some new ones along the way.”

During The Auburn Auction Saturday at 6 p.m., Worldwide Auctioneers will be selling a 2011 Ford Mustang Brenspeed Saleen Prototype at no reserve to benefit the Next Gen Education Program. Memorabilia sells first beginning at 5 p.m., with a special open-bar bidder preview from 4 to 6 p.m. To view the Brenspeed car and others being offered, click here
