Aug. 4, 2010

August 4, 2010—The top ten users of the Coordinating Committee For Automotive Repair’s (CCAR) S/P2 online learning program—a safety and pollution prevention course—for the 2009-2010 school year were announced Wednesday.

The ten chosen were among schools involved in the Automotive Youth Education Systems (AYES) program, which is a program designed to encourage young people to pursue careers in the automotive industry.

“Personal safety and environmental pollution are key workplace issues that must be part of a school-to-career initiative, like AYES,” said Chuck Roberts, president and CEO of AYES. “With the cooperation of CCAR, we are proud to be able to incorporate the S/P2 curriculum within our model.”

The top ten school users were:
• Bolton High School, Arlington, Tenn.;
• Chesapeake Center for Science & Technology, Chesapeake, Va.;
• El Campo High School, El Campo, Texas;
• Indian Capital Technology Center-Muskogee, Muskogee, Okla.;
• New Mexico Junior College, Hobbs, N.M.;
• Pinellas Technical Education Center, Clearwater, Fla.;
• South Side High School, Jackson, Tenn.;
• Spotsylvania Vocational Center, Spotsylvania, Pa.;
• Waltrip High School, Houston;
• White House High School, White House, Tenn.

“CCAR has been honored to work with AYES schools since 2004,” said Darren Fristoe, CCAR president and chief operating officer. “Together we are increasing the level of awareness in the auto repair industry regarding key environmental and safety issues, which can only work to the benefits of these students and their eventual employers.”

The schools will receive certificates of recognition and free access to the S/P2 program during the 2010-2011 school year.
