MPHS automotive service students compete at Ford | Schools
MPHS AST Seniors Sean Henderson and Caleb Turnbow competed at the 2014 Ford Motor Company/AAA Student Auto Skills Challenge State Hands-On Competition in Atlanta. Teams raced to beat the clock to correctly diagnose and repair a deliberately "bugged" 2014 Ford Fiesta SE. The MPHS team scored the highest along with nine other teams statewide on a written online exam to qualify for the hands-on state competition.
The Ford/AAA Auto Skills competition offers millions of dollars in scholarships and prizes to high school juniors and seniors who want careers as automotive service technicians.
Our local Ford dealership, Trophy Ford and AST instructor, Dwain Evans, helped students practice for the competition by allowing them to use a Ford Fiesta SE. Henderson and Turnbow placed tenth.
