UCHS students set to compete in state-level Auto Skills event

Two Unicoi County High School students have earned a chance to win scholarship money as well as tools for future use in automotive services through a Ford/AAA-sponsored hands-on state level competition.
Keith Greer, Unicoi County Vocational School automotive instructor, said that he administered an Automotive Service Excellence test, which includes sections in specific areas like safety and engine maintenance, to 22 automotive students on Feb. 2. “It’s a very hard test,” said Greer.
Senior Jake Mills scored the highest, followed by junior Chase Honeycutt. Their automotive excellence allows them to participate in the 2012 Ford/AAA Student Auto Skills competition to take place at Lane Motor Museum in Nashville on May 3.
According to Greer, the students will have to fix a Ford Fusion that will have problems inserted into it for competition purposes: “The person who can fix the most problems in the shortest amount of time wins.” said Greer.
