  Automotive Technology II Students Win First Place in State Competition

Cody Cahill and Kiren Morris, two of the Grenada Career and Technical Center Automotive Technology II students, participated in the Ford AAA Hands-On Competition in April.  The two placed first in the competition out of ten teams from across the state, qualifing them to compete in the national Ford AAA competition this summer in Michigan. 

Before the competition began, the two students practiced as much as possible on the 2014 Ford Fiesta loaned to them by Kirk Auto.  Car Quest Auto Parts of Grenada also donated extra parts to help them prepare for the competition.  During the competition, participants had to identify ten problems (bugs) within the vehicle.  Some of the problems they encountered included clipped pegs on the right front turn signal bulb, clipped bulbs on the left rear tail light assembly, unhooked brake actuator, a stress ball placed in the air box, a pin cut out in the gas pedal circuit, and an unplugged 12-volt power point.  Each bug counted as one demerit. The teams only had one hour and thirty minutes to identify the problems and drive the vehicle across the point of no return, then on to the finish line. Cahill and Morris were able to identify eight bugs, leaving an unplugged power point and the gas pedal bugs. This caused the team to get two demerits, but they still finished first ahead of all the other teams.

For first place they received about $24,500 each in scholarships from different schools, including Universal Technical Institute (UTI), Ohio Technical College, Ranken Technical College, and Ford Asset.  They also received Snap-On Tools, shirts, hats, and jackets. The duo will leave Mississippi on June 8, 2014, to go to Dearborn, Michigan, for four days and three nights, to compete in the national competition with 49 other teams from across the USA.  Grenada School District wishes them the best of luck as they represent Grenada and the State of Mississippi.

Grenada Career and Technical Center students recently placed first out of ten teams in the Ford AAA Hands-On Competition.  GCTC Automotive Instructor Ricky Jones (middle) displays the trophy won by the students.  The team will travel to Michigan in June to compete with 49 other teams from across the United States in the national Ford competition.
