Connections to industry are an important part of making sure our programs are teaching up-to-date information that prepares our students to enter today’s workforce. One way we connect with our industry partners is through our advisory committees which meet regularly. Each month, we will feature an industry partner that works with UACCM to help us better our programs and prepare our students.

First up is David Speights, owner of Speights Auto Parts Inc.! David has served on UACCM advisory committees for over 20 years.

What are the benefits of partnering with UACCM, for you and for the college?

“It has been a valuable tool to help grow my business by keeping up with new trends in my industry.”

Why should others serve on advisory committees?

“To build relationships with people entering into their field. And to help shape the future of their industry.”

What do you enjoy about your career and why should students consider your field?

“Meeting people, helping them when they need it, & the challenge of keeping up with new trends.”

Looking back, what advice would you give yourself when you were starting your career?

“Take more time to learn all you can, get to know people better, & plan on being in it for the long haul.”
