It is FIT’s honor to be able to recognize Tyler Corder and the Findlay Automotive Group in our Donor Spotlight
Tyler personally has been pivotal in the growth and maturation of FIT. As a member of the Board of Directors and the Executive Committee, he participates in setting the policy of FIT and shaping its program. One of his most recent contributions comes in the form of the newly launched Automotive Technology class.
Together with other colleagues at Findlay, in particular, John Gonzales, Tyler helped us put together a brand-new curriculum to put people on the front rung of a career ladder in Automotive Technology. This curriculum is very innovative, combining classroom education at FIT with hands-on learning at Findlay car dealerships. We believe it will be one of the premier classes of all of the Standards of Excellence Academy curriculum.
Additionally, Tyler and Marsha Corder and the Findlay Automotive Group have been major financial contributors. Tyler has chaired the committee for our Gala, our single special event fundraiser for the past three years. Tyler has also introduced many new people and companies to FIT: people who have become FIT benefactors.
Tyler and the Findlay Automotive Group have taken of their time, talent and resources to help FIT actualize our mission to help the unemployed and underemployed in southern Nevada into self-sufficient employment.
Congratulations and thank you to Tyler Corder and the Findlay Automotive Group.
