A Des Moines Area Community College (DMACC) spokesperson announced today Connor Sackett of Bouton is among 14 students in the DMACC Automotive Service Education Program (ASEP) who will get a chance to work on a 2015 GMC Acadia recently donated to the program by General Motors.

Sackett is a 2014 graduate of Perry High School.

The vehicle retails for $48,500 and includes technology such as a forward collision warning system, a lane departure warning system, a rear backup camera and trizone air conditioning, he said.
