Automotive Club
The Automotive Club's purpose is to bring awareness to the many areas of the automotive industry.  It will also supplement information in areas of the automotive industry that our curriculum does not cover.  In the club, we hope to bring experience and knowledge to students interested in the automotive field by being an active part of the local automotive community, taking tours of automotive related businesses and facilities, attending automotive events, hosting training opportunities, and build relationships within the automotive industry.  The club will meet once a month and have two meeting times so full-and part-time students have the ability to be involved.
