Recently at the Indiana County Technology Center, 14 students from each program area were awarded Student of the Second Quarter honors.

The reward goes to any student in the morning and afternoon session who exhibits good attendance, puts forth a consistent effort in their program area and follows all safety rules as well as other rules for the program.

The program area instructor chooses which student demonstrates attributes of a hard worker, follower of instruction and is always giving 100 percent.

These students cannot be given this award in any other quarter. This gives other achieving students an opportunity to earn the “quarter student” title of their program area.

Other than recognition, the student receives a certificate and an ICTC T-shirt. This can encourage other students to do well in their program areas. What’s unique about this award is that it doesn’t reward students just for their academics, but also all the hard work they put into their projects.

Automotive Technology Field Trip

On Jan. 24, the Automotive Technology students had the opportunity to take a tour of the World of Wheels custom car show at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh.

Students from all over the state that are interested in a technical career in Automotive Technology went to see the World of Wheels. They had a chance to look around at unique cars and to talk to the owners.

This will help the students get a better understanding of what it would be like to own and work at a high ranking car shop.

A student from our school, Brad Leasure, told us that he didn’t realize how much time and effort it takes to put into a car to make it a finished product.

Many of the students will tell you that going to see the World of Wheels show was definitely an eye-opening experience.

They had a great time learning new techniques and getting a better grasp of what a technical career in the automotive industry could offer for them.
