SLCC student, staffer awarded new “recycled” ride

Vanessa Wilkins drove home from Salt Lake Community College on March 13 a happy woman, behind the wheel of a free 2008 Nissan Quest minivan.

SLCC staff worked with American Family Insurance to select a deserving individual at SLCC to receive the van, rehabilitated with the help of donations from local auto parts stores and the efforts of Superior Auto Body in Draper. Wilkins’ family recently had two vehicles break down, making it a struggle to get their three children to different schools and both parents to work. After stitching together their family’s various commutes, Wilkins finally purchased a small car. The rehabilitated used van, however, will be a huge addition to the family’s driveway.


With this donation through National Auto Body Council’s Recycled Rides program, in coordination with American Family Insurance, the Wilkins family can breathe a little easier and even allow their children to bring a friend along for a simple trip to the park. Vanessa Wilkins, who works part time in SLCC’s Student Life and Leadership office, and her husband both take classes at SLCC.
