HCC RECEIVES SCHOLARSHIP IN MEMORY OF LOCAL RESIDENT

An Automotive Systems Technology scholarship was awarded to Halifax Community College (HCC) in memory of Peter John Amsler who died Aug. 10, 2006. An avid lover of classic automobiles, Amsler was a long-time member and past president of the Stray Cats Hot Rod Association.

The Stray Cats Hot Rod Association is a group of classic automobile enthusiasts. The group was instrumental in creating the Stray Cats Hot Rod Association Scholarship at HCC, which they recently named in Amsler's memory.

After Amsler's death, the organization collected gifts to provide additional support for the Automotive Systems Technology Program. These additional funds will support two students over three semesters.
