WASHINGTON — Some sweet rides rolled into the Washington County Regional Center’s parking lot Oct. 13, where enthusiast group Corn Country Cruisers brought vintage vehicles for Auto Technology Academy students to view.
It was an opportunity for students to see cars and trucks from the past and ask the club member volunteers about the processes that they took to restore their vehicles. Students were able to see changes that have taken place over the years with engine components and advances in technology.
“The car show is something that our students look forward to every year,” said Tera Pickens, Kirkwood Washington County Regional Center Director. “We appreciate the community partnership with the Corn Country Cruisers and their commitment to sharing their classic cars with our students, the next generation of car enthusiasts.”
Kirkwood Washington County Regional Center provides free dual credit opportunities for students to get training and certifications in Automotive Technology while still in high school. With a focus on bumper-to-bumper diagnostic and maintenance skills, students receive education aimed at providing skills needed in the high-demand field of auto technology.
