Chevy Owner Donates Two Corvettes to Kentucky Trade School
Chevy fan and retired doctor Ivan Schrodt recently donated two of his Corvettes to the Advanced Motorsports Foundation, an extension of Warren County Area Technology Center. The trade school is located close to the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Its mission is to help equip local high school students with trade skills they can use in the workforce.

A legacy of generosity
Even though Dr. Schrodt doesn’t live in Warren County or Bowling Green, he has a personal interest in Corvettes and enjoys giving back to the community. He expressed his confidence in the quality and mission of the Warren County Area Technology Center. “[It’s] one of the more outstanding technical high schools that I’ve ever seen anywhere, an amazing program producing wonderful results,” he said.
Per GM Authority, Dr. Schrodt’s two Corvettes aren’t the first time he’s helped support the school. In the past couple of years, he has donated more than $90K to the center. He also plans to continue his financial sponsorship for the foreseeable future. Thanks to his generosity, many students have benefited from scholarships at the school.
The donated Corvettes
The school expressed gratitude for the Corvettes. Students and faculty will modify and upgrade the cars in preparation for the 2019 Holley LS Fest event. Held in Bowling Green this September, this event includes a variety of driving competitions such as autocross, slalom, drag racing, and timed road-course runs.
We commend Dr. Schrodt for his charitable spirit, not only in giving away his own Corvettes, but also for his investment in local students’ lives. We also wish the students at Warren County Area Technology Center good luck in this September’s Holley LS Fest.
