Newton Auto Teams Take Top Spots at State Contest

Automotive technology students from Newton’s Career & Technology Education (CTE) program competed in the Ford/AAA Student Auto Skills contest held at Pittsburg State University on May 7. The students competed in teams of 2 and had 90 minutes to repair a new Ford Fiesta that has had 10-12 faults intentionally installed. 

Austin Kline from Hesston and Casey Friesen from Halstead took the top spot in the competition with a time of 55 minutes and a perfect car, which means all the faults were fixed and the team did not have any workmanship demerits. As a result of their first place finish they will be competing at the National Contest, which will be held June 8 in Dearborn Michigan. Kline and Friesen received approximately $20,000 worth of scholarships to various automotive schools and a Snap-on tool set. The team also secured the trophy for the highest written test score in the state contest.

The Newton team of Jack Barnhart from Hesston and Arik Schmidt from Goessel took 2nd place. This team also won significant scholarships as well as some Snap-on tools. Newton CTE Mobile Maintenance Equipment instructors Cory Unruh and Bob Ziegler coach the two winning teams.

Ford/AAA Student Auto Skills is a nationwide automotive technology competition for high school juniors and seniors interested in pursuing careers as automotive service technicians. The competition tests students’ automotive knowledge, workmanship and problem-solving abilities with a written test and a hands-on race against the clock to diagnose and properly repair an intentionally “bugged” vehicle.  Forty of the top high school automotive students from Kansas and Missouri competed in the event at Pittsburg.

At the national finals in Dearborn, champions from each state will vie for millions of dollars in scholarships, automotive equipment and a trip to the Wood Brothers Racing facility where the students and instructor will work on race cars and learn from top automotive engineers.

The Newton High School Career & Technology Education department offers 15 career pathways that help prepare students to become college and career ready. The program provides opportunities to obtain college credit, shadow a mentor in a career field and earn industry certification.

Duke University Recognizes Chisholm Middle School Students
The following Chisholm Middle Schools students will be recognized at Kansas University on May 31, 2015 as part of Duke University's Talent Identification Program (TIP):
Back row, L- R: Fletcher Hummingbird, John Jantzen, Connor Hultman, Quinn Stephens, Mark Mills
 
Front row, L-R: Josh Kennell, Clara Rowe, Eli Regier
 
 
Duke University Talent Identification Program's 7th Grade Talent Search identifies students across the US who have scored at or above the 95th percentile on a grade-level achievement test.  As part of the program, these academically talented students take above-level college-entrance exams (ACT or SAT) to learn more about their abilities.
 
Duke TIP hosts annual recognition ceremonies to honor the seventh graders who score highest on these ACT or SAT exams.  This year eight Chisholm Middle School students have been invited to attend state recognition ceremonies at Kansas University on May 31st.  
 
One of these students, Mark Mills, has also been invited to attend the Grand Recognition Ceremony at Duke on May 18th. The grand recognition ceremony honors seventh graders who have earned scores equal to or better than 90 percent of college-bound seniors who took the same tests.   
 
"As seventh graders, these students have achieved scores on the ACT rivaling those of half of college-bound  seniors who took the tests.  We are extremely proud of our honorees, and we appreciate the opportunity to celebrate their achievement and encourage them in their academic potential," says Martha Putallaz, PhD, executive director of Duke TIP and professor of psychology and neuroscience at Duke University.
 
Duke TIP provides resources to these students, their parents, educators, and schools for the development of the students' optimal educational potential.
