Camp Opportunity is almost here!
McDowell Technical Community College is partnering with McDowell County Schools to offer "Camp Opportunity" on the McDowell High School campus the week of June 15-18, 2015. Up to 120 middle school students, those entering 6th through 8th grade in Fall 2015, will have the opportunity to explore one career per day. It will run from 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM daily, Monday through Thursday. It is free of charge to participants; grant funds will cover all costs. Transportation will be offered through an abbreviated bus route. Some of the sessions will be held on the McDowell Tech/Universal campus and at other locations in the area.
The Route 70 Cruisers, a local car club based in Old Fort NC, recently provided MTCC with $1,000 to be used for scholarships in Automotive Systems Technology and Collision Repair and Refinishing Technology. Pictured above are (left to right) Kim Ledbetter, Director of Financial Aid; Donnie McCraw, Automotive Systems Instructor; Phillip Poe and Lawrence Reel of Route 70 Cruisers; and David Toney, Collision Repair and Refinishing Instructor.
The Route 70 Cruisers Scholarships are available to students in Automotive Systems Technology and Collision Repair and Refinishing Programs who have financial need and a strong desire to pursue a career in the automotive industry. McDowell County residents are preferred.
For additional scholarship criteria and applications, contact the Financial Aid Office in the Cedar Building on the main campus.
