School will be represented at the Ford/AAA Student Auto Skills State Hands-On
Competition on Thursday, May 8, 2014, as it was one of the top performing
schools on the written exam portion of the contest. The Arcs will be represented by Dan Urda and Ronny
Shelby, who received the highest test scores on the exam. The 2014 state level competition will be held
at the AAA East Central Offices in Independence, OH, and will require each team
to apply their classroom knowledge by identifying and fixing several repair
issues on a test vehicle. Each team will
be evaluated based upon their ability to complete each repair quickly, while
also demonstrating a high degree of workmanship. The winning team and instructor will earn an
expense-paid trip to the national finals in Dearborn, MI, June 8-10, 2014. Sponsored
by Ford Motor Company and AAA, the competition was established to encourage
students to pursue careers as automotive service technicians.
Euclid-Lyndhurst Schools wish Dan Urda and Ronny Shelby success as they prepare
for the upcoming state competition.
