Secondary Auto Tech Program on a Roll
The Secondary Automotive Technology program at Northeastern Junior College had a huge following at its annual Rocky Mountain Oyster Fry held this past Friday night out at North Campus. The students had pre-sold more than 180 tickets to the event and when the fryers were cooling off, it appeared as though an additional 50 people had come through the line and paid at the door. The Fry was a fundraiser to help support the costs associated with running the group's Skills USA race car, a class project, at area tracks this coming spring as well as other equipment and tool costs incurred in the program's training labs. This secondary program represents a partnership between NJC and area high schools in which juniors and seniors are able to come to campus to work on auto-related projects while learning career skills in automotive technology
In addition, the Flatlanders Car Club also recently donated $400.00 to the program from proceeds raised at the Club's large car show held every July in Pioneer Park. The Flatlanders have been tremendous supporters of the college's automotive technology programs, making much appreciated cash donations and providing scholarships to the college-level students. Cherie and Roger Brungardt, who are members of the Flatlanders Car Club and who have also served on the advisory committee for the secondary program, made the presentation to program director Richard Moon.
