Wayne Township Automotive Technology to be featured on Emmy Award-Winning “Classroom Close-Up”

Segment will feature the 5th Annual End of Year Car Show, which included over 400 cars, trucks, motorcycles and one-of-a-kind vehicles

The Wayne Township High Schools’ Automotive Technology Program will be featured on this Sunday’s episode of NJEA’s Emmy award winning, Classroom Close-Up, TV show. Last June, Classroom Close-up recorded the segment during the Auto Program’s annual end of year event. It will air on NJTV at 7:30am, 12:30pm, and 7:30pm on Sunday, December 18th, and again on Sunday, January 22nd, 2017. The segment will have the event’s auto show and a variety of interviews with Automotive Technology students and instructors.

Over one thousand people attended the fifth annual event along with over 400 cars, trucks, motorcycles, and other displays. The event gives Auto Program students, parents, alumni, Advisory Board members, and community organizations the opportunity to come together over a shared interest in automotive technology.

Automotive students were presented with scholarships from the Tri County Cruisers car club. In addition, the event honored the students who passed ASE Student Certification tests, and work study  students and their employers.

The event also allowed to meet with post-secondary automotive and diesel training schools, as well as Advisory Board members whose companies offer students employment after completion of their education.
