McPherson College's Automotive Restoration Program has been named the International Historic Motoring Awards 2015 Industry Supporter of the Year during a ceremony recently in London, England.

The Auto Restoration program was chosen for the honor from among finalists that included Hagery, Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations, Porsche Motorsports North America and Royal Automobile Club.

“This is a wonderful recognition of everyone who has worked so hard to make the automotive restoration program a success – our campus community, alumni, advisory board and supporters,” Amanda Gutierrez, vice president for automotive restoration, said. “This is an international state affirming the quality and value of what we've built during the last 40 years.”

The International Historic Motoring Awards were established in 2011 to recognize and celebrate the skills and achievements of the worldwide historic motoring industry. The event, held in London's St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel, comprises 14 award categories.
